Today’s Rhetorical Question :

Kit, are the decorative markings painted onto the pony? Are they tattooed? Are they “Ceremonial Markings”?

    Dear Cap and Patti, First, I was relieved to read this morning that Frank is out of surgery! Keep up the hard work of recovery Frank. May it be thorough and swift.
    Second, my horse I work with Chuntay (heart in Lakota), is a EAGALA therapy horse who works with many children from Pine Ridge Reservation. Chuntay is called upon to participate in many ceremonies and celebrations here in and around Rapid City, South Dakota.
    He is painted in this photo as he was at Native Park at a celebration the day before my daughter Amy came to visit.
    Traditionally many tribes, including Lakota, painted their horses as a sign of power when in war. In therapy, native children paint the horses to connect with their culture. It helps them regain their power in life by connecting with horses and their culture, a very strong tool in healing.
    I work with Chuntay doing Liberty Training working through connection and no tack. We work solely on consent. It is fascinating, and while Chuntay is fully trained, he helps me learn to communicate using little to no tools, and only my energy and emotions.
    Next to him is my daughter, Amy, who met him for the first time. He left his supper with 8 other horses to greet us.
    Chuntay led us away from the group to have us alone, and we visited for quite a while. He was fascinated by her and knew of our connection as mother and daughter.
    He is a lovely being, and sure looks handsome when painted. In the up coming Days of 76 in Deadwood, Chuntay will be in his traditional buffalo regalia. costume in the parade. I’ll send pictures later this month.
    Cheers from the Black Hills where we’re rooting for Frank!

    My niece, Kari, also posts her good odo readings. By the way, you both have the older mechanical odos that are much more fascinating to view than the electronic ones.

      Nice to see that you are still checking in here Robert! Yes indeed, the older odometer readings are more “readable” than the newer electronic ones. Where does your niece Kari post her interesting odometer readings. By the way Robert, your Comment was published at 12:34pm! Smiling .. Cap

        She posts on Facebook, but don’t ask me where or how, I’m always mystified by Facebook! Also, I was not up anywhere that late, must be EDT.
