The magic pony

One day, 13 years ago, while driving through the countryside I saw a small black pony on a hill and I knew we belonged together…don’t ask me how or why. There were horses all around, but this one…he caught me. I spoke to the owners and they allowed me to buy him. I hadn’t riddenContinue reading “The magic pony”

The story about Mr Red, the Cat

In my village there are plenty of cats; domestic ones belonging to households, wild ones born somewhere in a barn and then there are the “left-overs”, cats that were dumped by people moving away. All these cats come visiting from time to time though I never feed them. They sleep in my garden and huntContinue reading “The story about Mr Red, the Cat”

BUTTERFLIES

I have, inadvertently, become a butterfly breeder. Outside my kitchen door grows a huge nasturtium where, a little less than a week ago, I saw some caterpillars and was delighted, I love butterflies 🙂 I invited more; “Welcome to breed here, chez moi!” They were quick to take me up on my offer and theContinue reading “BUTTERFLIES”

A cow called Baby

I treated my first cow today and I find cows to be very special and not entirely easy to grasp. Mind you, I’ve treated a wide variety of “odd” animals such as snakes, lizards, rats, birds and toads as well as different wild animals, but cow was special.

When I move around you, you will move as well. Often you will not even notice it. I am moving you – physically, with my body – without touching you. Maybe chit-chatting about the weather, a glass of champagne in my hand… Or you will move me. I have a horse in my life, aContinue reading “MOVEMENT IS COMMUNICATION”

BBC – Earth News – Blue tits embrace ‘aromatherapy’

It’s well known that plants use the essential oil to attract insects for pollination or to protect themselves from bacteria (or fungi as presented in an earlier post on Oud) and other attacks. Some plants even use the essential oil to take more space from surrounding plants. I have written earlier about the pheromones andContinue reading “BBC – Earth News – Blue tits embrace ‘aromatherapy’”

AROMATHERAPY & ANIMALS cont…

Animals seem to know instinctively what they need. In the wild they search that which will heal them when they are unwell. This is the basis of treating animals with essential oils; of course you need to know the oils and how to use them, but the animal always chooses the oils: When I firstContinue reading “AROMATHERAPY & ANIMALS cont…”

AROMATHERAPY & ANIMALS

I get a lot of questions about animals and how I treat them. The first and main reason I even came to Luxembourg was because of horses and treating them; mainly one big very sad horse. Animals are individuals with very diverse personalities; some are pushy and some are shy – like the big sadContinue reading “AROMATHERAPY & ANIMALS”
