Israel and back

Av L Viktoria M Sandberg - 22 april 2015 10:48

Gacela is recovering, it is not a straight road and still lots of worries on the way, one day she looks better and another she looks a little worse, but all in all she is progressing. The big news is that from times to times she is able to nurse from mami, Pica is 100% cooperative but we still have to handfeed her every 3 hours though because only sometimes Ella is able to get up by herself. She has a lot of personality and this character helps her, she is full of will and want to grow and discover.  My super parents are/have been watching over her with helping hands, guided by intuition and feeling in what she needs and how she needs it which this is fundamental for her progress. So because of this backup I was able to go to Israel, I used to travel alot but now it was the first time I went somewhere in many years. First day was Holocaust Memorial day, started with a siren and silent minute. This day I went to the south to teach some very ambitious dressage students, an intense and interesting day with 9 lessons. Next day I helped Maya with Halagador and Eva with Exo, it was great to see them in their nice homes and with new happy owners. On the sunday I went back to the south for more lessons and we had more fun!
Beautiful people in Israel, it's a special place and I met so many warm people, I got to go to special places including Tel Aviv center and beach, Jerusalem and the Dead Sea. The water is oily and supposed to be very good for you, I floated properly for the first time it was great to feeling of weightlessness. Dead Sea is the lowest point in the world. I saw camels on the road and met a Beduine living in the desert. And I had my favourite food, the best hummus and falafel ever. I also got my first lesson in reining and realized my dressage muscle memory doesn't respond as the commands for reining are totally opposite to the ones in dressage. I realize I have all the patience in the world for my studens but none for myself. Good lesson! Special thanks to Amir, Maya, Sagit, Daphna, students and to both my parents for making this trip possible and super special. Now it's great to be back to work!

So have we said goodbye to Kiko our beautiful baby. Nature has had its course and wisely decides what is to be and what is not. And we have to accept and let go. Kiko was born too early, he was premature and weak and was not able to eat himself. I go...
