  • Aquatics Euphoria: Speaking About The Flowerhorn, A Controversy!

    in Pets

    Flowerhorn breeding dates from 1993. Malaysians admired fish with protruding heads, known as Kaloi or "warships," found in the western part of the nation. The slightly protruding forehead and long tail of these fish were prized in Taiwanese society as bringing luck in geomancy. By 1994, red devil cichlids and trimac cichlids had been imported from Central America to Malaysia and the hybrid blood parrot cichlid had been imported from Taiwan to Malaysia and bred these fish together, marking the birth of the flowerhorn.

  • Renee King-Sonnen, founder of Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

    in Pets

    Renee's is transitioning into a very edgy immersion into veganism.  Renee is forever changed by her decision. It's been a long time coming, and being married to her husband that she loves and respects dearly is what catapulted her over the edge of "no return"!  She lives on a 96 acre ranch with him. She was transplanted from suburbia to the ranch 6 years ago where she fell in love with all the critters....kinda like Elly Mae Clampett.  Renee named them all and loved everyone - she'd go out and spend time with them, dance around them - sing to them and talk to them.
    Then they started being trailered up to go to the sale barn, and the experience of watching them leave, the mamas wailing for a week and the absense of their souls in the pasture haunted Renee. This past Halloween, while at her mother in laws, Renee found myself saying no to anything with meat in it. She'd been vegetarian in the past and even tried a raw diet for several months, but never had the compassion connection until she LIVED IT!  She loves those animals - she sees their souls, and they see hers.  Renee can tell they are looking at her out of the corner of their eye. Renee says they can feel our motives.

    Susan Hamilton utilizes Animal Communication and Energy Healing using Healing Touch for animals among other techniques such as - Animal Communication, Healing Touch for Animals, Nutritional consulting, Accupressure, Kinesiology, Scalar Wave and Reiki.
    Susan has over 40 years experience in dealing with animals from German Shepherds to Great Danes and Thoroughbreds to Quarter Horses. She has always had an “intuitive” feel for her animals and often seemed to just “know” things about them. Susan belonged to the Gold Creek Cavalry where she and her horse participated in drills, parades camp outs and trail rides. She later showed horses on the “A” Hunter/Jumper circuit in the Adult Amateur and Amateur Owner divisions.. Riding with such luminaries as Brad Laird and John Bauman. She has also successfully shown German Shepherd dogs in the confirmation show ring.
    She began this particular journey when she lost her mare to laminitis.a very painful disease of the hoof. Another of her horses was misdiagnosed with Insulin Resistance much like diabetes in humans Over the next few years and many unproductive vet bills, it was discovered that he did not have this disease at all. Having him on a good nutritious diet, lots of turnout, proper exercise, body and energy work were the keys to keeping him healthy and happy. Susan was drawn to learning much more about nutrition both for animals and people.
    Throughout her life, Susan has never been without an animal of some sort. At one point she owned 12 horses. Working in the painting and construction industry was the means of supporting all her animals. Susan is finally realizing her lifelong dream of being able to work directly with animals in a wonderful and unique way.
