This was not a good day for Magic! Magic was getting his feet trimmed, teeth checked, medical checkup and groomed - the hard way. Magic, a 10 year old Arabian Stallion would not ever let anyone handle him with out being darted and tranquilized. You see, he just does not trust people - no way!
This picture was taken in April 2008 at a horse rescue farm in Florida where I worked as a volunteer. That is Papa in the background with the western hat on.
Magic had been there for over a year. He was not a mean horse, just terrified of people. He had been rescued from a place where he had been beaten severely and abused. He will have difficulty ever trusting humans - he remembers well. How sad - he is a beautiful horse with great potential.
Perhaps you have had incidents in the past where your trust has been violated. Surrender the trust issue to Christ - don't horse around carrying those issues. It will defeat you if you let it.
Magic does not know he will never be beat again. He does not believe he can trust anyone - but he is very slowly trying to trust. I have talked softly to him, fed him, even got to touch his nose in the pasture, but thats it.
Christ wants you to use your potential - trust Him to do that. Make a life for your self. Learn to trust - again.
