Horse healed of colic
My wife and I live on a horse farm and have three horses. One morning recently, our oldest horse, Spudder, showed signs of being colicky. This concerned my wife, a longtime horse trainer, so she asked me to help her take him to the veterinarian.
The vet did some tests and told us Spudder was suffering from severe gas as well as an organ that was out of place, caused by what he’d eaten the night before. The vet did the procedures that were normal in cases like this, but there was no improvement. He rejected surgery because of Spudder’s age and recommended that we leave him overnight so they could monitor him. The vet said that he would contact us later in the evening about how Spudder was doing, but that there was nothing more he could do at that point.
As we left, my wife said she had little hope for the horse. I had been knowing the truth about our horse as created by God, Spirit, and telling him that God loved him and was caring for him, keeping him as the apple of His eye (see Deuteronomy 32:10). I knew that he was receptive to spiritual ideas and that this was an opportunity for healing.
