About Stress and Injury in People and Animals
Sometimes Humans are very stressed. Then your Brain Rights say that an “Injury” happened.
In this we are alike too. Because it happens with us too. And not just horses, but all kinds of animals.
My Man Once Used to Have Another Horse. His name was Ryzhulenka. Ryzhulenka was my friend, we often talked. He told me that before My Man he had a very bad life. Bad Places and Bad People. Ryzhulenka was afraid of everything and with difficulty learned to trust My Man. But I learned.
And all the same - sometimes, out of the blue, he could panic. Rush to run somewhere headlong. Then Ryzhulenka told me that “something had found” on him, and he was very scared - even worse than in the previous Bad Life, although in reality there was nothing terrible. But he could do nothing to take himself in his hooves. My Man was engaged with him, and it passed. Not right away, of course.
This happens to you if you survived an Injury - when a lot of time has passed, everything seems to be forgotten, and suddenly you fall into a panic or a frenzy. My man says it's called flash back.
In fact, these moments of panic are not accidental. There is always a trigger. But this is usually a trifle. For example, some kind of sound. Or a suddenly flashed silhouette. Or whatever. My Man says this is called the “Trigger”. I wrote down these difficult words so as not to forget and tell you, but you may not remember them.
You know what? You can even get sick from such an experience of all kinds of Injuries! For real.
And I also heard a story about a Dog who attacked a mistress who picked up a mop. At first, her Men were frightened, because the dog was terribly angry and even seemed to bite the mistress, and then turned to the Specialist. It’s good that they turned - they were Good Hosts. They questioned all the Household members and it turned out that once the Dog, still small, climbed into the closet, clung to the mop, and a lot of all kinds of things fell on it with a roar. Can you imagine? The dog was very, very afraid - it was an injury. And when she saw the mop, she thought that now she was also very, very scared. The dog, of course, was helped, and now she is doing well.
What am I doing? Please do not think that if your Dog, Cat, Horse or Other, some Beast does something strange, it is because it is bad. "Just like that" never happens. Never and nothing - you need to remember this.
There is always a reason. It's just that it usually seems so insignificant that they do not pay attention to it.
You can tell your Reasons to Other People and help yourself. We are not, because you do not understand our language. Therefore, your task is to observe us, recognize what scares or disturbs us, and help us.
We cannot help ourselves. All hope is only on you, Our People.
