Today, 7 November 2013, a purebred Arabian mare whose name is Khatayst joined our family. Today is a special day for her ~ it is her Birthday!! Khatalyst is 15 years old. 

The extraordinary way Khatalyst came to me demonstrates yet again that Extra Sensory Perception or Intuitive Communication, whatever term one wishes to use, is real. It exists. 

Today was a very emotional day for me because Khatalyst is Khomet’s sister. Today I waited in the same place as I did on 29 March 2002 when Khomet travelled to me from New South Wales. Unfortunately the horse truck was delayed because of irresponsible horse owners. The driver was very tired and stressed by the time he arrived with Khatalyst. This is a photo of the horse truck making its way up to our home in the evening around 7PM. The driver was very impressed with how Khatalyst coped with the 8 ½ hour journey and all the hassles. He described her as “a dream”.

This is a photo of Khomet wearing his rhythm beads. He was a 15.1 hand grey Arabian gelding, beautiful in every way. Khomet was the gift to me of a lifetime. I will always miss him with all my heart.

It was too dark to give Khatalyst her Birthday Card yesterday evening so I waited until this morning. I do not believe Khatalyst has ever been given a Birthday Card. It appears she has never been given a carrot either.

Khatalyst is nowhere near as tall as Khomet. She is not even 14 hands. Whereas Khomet was grey, Khatalyst is “flea-bitten”. Khomet died when he was only 17 years old. I pray my little girl will be with me for a very long time to come. I will cherish her with all my heart.

This is a photo of Khatalyst with Hallmark and Charlamayne this morning. As I expected, they have settled in very easily with each other.  

Misty has met Khatalyst through the fence. Because I am uncertain how Khatalyst might react, and mares can kick, I am keeping Misty and Hobson separated from Khatalyst for quite a while. I do not believe Khatalyst has had much interaction, if any, with dogs. This is a photo of Misty sitting with Hallmark while we were waiting for the farrier. Misty was such a good girl while the farrier trimmed Hallmark's feet.

Hallmark has taken charge because he looks after everyone. I think he loves Khatalyst already. He keeps on eye on little Charlamayne too. I think Khatalyst cannot believe her luck in sharing her life now with "Mr McDreamy"!

I posted a couple of videos on YouTube of our first morning with Khatalyst.

It's the Law of Attraction, Susan. You sure do attract beautiful Arabians, don't you?! What a beautiful card! I show up to my sister's with carrots and apples also! Enjoy your new love! Kim :)

Thank you for your positive comments, Karen and Kimberly. You would not believe, maybe you would, how Khatalyst came to me. I feel so happy that she is safe now. I just hope she doesn't kick Hallmark or Charlamayne but we would have to be extremely unlucky for this to happen. It is funny because when Khatalyst tries to put Charlamayne in his place, Hallmark steps in and tells her off. I'm pleased you enjoyed the videos, Karen. Did you notice Mr McDreamy (Hallmark) was walking in time with the music! Yes, my horses are just like children. They bring me great joy. xxxxx

Dear Anna, Thank you for your well wishes .. much appreciated by all of us. My horse, Misty Blue and I found this property together. The property is named after Misty Blue. (My blue belton English Setter, Misty is named after my horse, Misty Blue). I hope I can manage to keep our home somehow because my horses and my English Setters and my longhaired Dachshund, Benmore have been happy here. I also love to see horses running freely and being able to graze. Too many of them are confined in small spaces and stables. It is good for the soul to run free. xxxx
