One cold, wintry day Abby was running, bucking, and playing in her pen. I was scooping poop and filling her feed and water, watching her play.

I watched as she slipped on the ice, and her body twisted in a way that no horse's body should twist. Her front end twisted one way while her rear end twisted the other, and she crashed to the ground, sliding through the ice, snow, and mud.

Once she righted herself, I knew that she was very hurt. I also knew if I called the vet they would just put her on some bute (phenylbutazone) and call it good. She was sensitive to bute... sigh. So I put her food and water right beside her and headed off to call my Aunt Sara Kenney!

Aunt Sara came to the rescue the very next morning. She wasted no time in driving the 2 hours, in the winter, to help my poor mare. Armed with all the necessary oils to apply the Raindrop Technique, we set to work. She and I layered the oils on, one at a time.

With Aunt Sara on one side of Abby and me on the other, we were cat scratching and Vita Flexing the oils into her back, legs, and coronet bands. As we worked, a lump began to form on Abby's back in the loin area. The bump got bigger and bigger as we worked. We were commenting on it and wondering what was going on and what would happen!

We finished up with the oils and put a nice warm stack of towels and saddle blankets on Abby's back to allow the oils to really sink in and do their job. Abby was resting peacefully, napping head down, and enjoying her treatment with her lower lip hanging down in relaxation.

The barn kitty, one of Abby's best friends, Suzy, came along and jumped up onto the stack of towels and blankets on her back and settled down for a little nap herself. (Who says cats don't like oils!?!) We enjoyed watching them be so at peace.

I felt at peace myself because what we were doing was obviously helping Abby's back, and her pain levels had dropped considerably since we started. Also the smell in the barn was wonderful!!

When Abby was done soaking it all in, Aunt Sara removed the pile of blankets and began to do the leg stretches. The lump was still visible on Abby's back. Aunt Sara stretched one front leg, then the other, and then moved around to one of her hind legs.

Abby really leaned into the stretch of that hind leg, pulling against Aunt Sara who was leaning back into the stretch herself, allowing Abby to dictate just how far the stretch would go. It was then that we heard an audible POP CRACK, and the lump on Abby's back was GONE! Abby gave a huge sigh and then offered my Aunt the other hind leg for stretching.

After all the stretching was done, Abby casually strolled out of the barn and out to her pen. There was not a lame step, and she was walking completely normally. She was good as new but now smelling heavenly!

It was that instant that I was totally sold on the power of essential oils.
