Appaloosa Reflection

Animals reflect our behaviour. The animals that we feel a closeness to, encounter often, engage with, attract and so on; have a role to play in that moment of our lives. They offer an understanding to us of the ‘play’ that is our current experience, and give insight into the intricacies of our lives. Following is the understanding for the magnificent Appaloosa.

(It needs to be noted that were a dog/cat/horse to have been mothered, fathered by two or more differing types of dog/cat/horse, one must note the characteristics of both, or all of the known breeds within this coupling to ascertain the many characteristics which their choice has to offer.)

Appaloosa (Listen while you read)


Haughty; some may say.

Gentle: indeed ’tis true.

Stocky; well this is not us.

Finer; indeed is true.

I have a fine spirit, yes indeed.

I have a fine spirit and love to roam, yes, this is true.

Why then oh why do you not let me do as I please?

Why oh why do you insist on keeping me within these walls?

Don’t you know that I crave for the wide expanse of space that is there just waiting to be enjoyed?

Yes, that is right, my dear friend. The appaloosa personality is one that wishes to roam, enjoying all that life has to offer. Try to keep an Appaloosa personality on a leash at your own peril. They will indeed find a way to escape.

Once freed, this personality will love his freedom to the extent that his/her meanderings may take on a universal quest, so to speak. Not for the feint-hearted, dear friends; no indeed. Not for the feint-hearted. The Appaloosa personality wants more than the ordinary. More than the so-called ordinary events of life; yes sir’ee. The Appaloosa personality works best under a particular amount of stress.

Surprised? Yes?

Well, dear friends, this is indeed true. The Appaloosa personality thrives on a little adventure; a little movement; a little loving; a little sense of escape from the so-called realities of life. Realities such as; cleaning, cooking, housework; you get the drift. Yes, drudgery is not a quality that the Appaloosa personality can adjust to. To try to limit this personality to a normal/ordinary way of living will only bring disaster to bear upon you.

Therefore, you are forewarned, my friend. Treat the Appaloosa personality wisely with this knowledge, and all will be well. Do not adhere to this advice at your own peril….. You have been warned, my friend.

  1. The spirit of animals reflect our own spirits- they are limited by these so-called “rules” we keep forcing upon ourselves and each other. I am so tired of Rules! Rules! Rules! Let us be free for a little while!

  2. Hum-m-m-m — got me again. I have an Appy, and he indeed fits the bill….But, then so do I. Thank you for doing this yet again. It makes me smile when you hit so close to home. You do really well at these. Amazes me. love and blessings, Teresa

  3. Well, Carolyn, this country gal has more animals than you could count on fingers and toes. That doesn’t count the chickens either 🙂 It is laughable 🙂 It is really neat for me to read your insights and see how very accurate they are. What a gift you have! Bless you, Teresa

    1. Talking about ‘chickens’, they’re the next reflection I’ve had a request for…. I’ll get that up in about another 24hours… should be interesting; I’ve always loved chickens. We had chickens in the backyard when I was a youngster… I used to love watching them; I found them really fascinating.. it’ll be good to find out their reflection..! It’s kinda neat for me too; I never know what is going to come… 😉

      1. Oh, Carolyn ! That will be very interesting to us. Each animal is so different and unique. Among the chickens, they are each different too. One amazing hen we have is named “Wonder” and she has survived some really hard times. If allowed to run loose she will follow my husband like a puppy for long distances too. What a character she is! Have a fun day, and a fun session with the personality of the chicken. 🙂

        1. I believe that absolutely… One of my joys as a child was to go up the backyard where the chicken coop was and watch them. They fascinated me; they seemed full of life. My father would let them roam sometimes and it was such fun to play with them… I have a collection of chicken ornaments in my kitchen (some that others have given to me because they know that I love them) plus others near and around my computer… so, yes, they are a favourite… 😉

  4. I really related to this passage! 😉 “The Appaloosa personality thrives on a little adventure; a little movement; a little loving; a little sense of escape from the so-called realities of life. Realities such as; cleaning, cooking, housework; you get the drift. Yes, drudgery is not a quality that the Appaloosa personality can adjust to.”

    I have a special love of Appaloosa horses. The first horse that I rode, at age 10, was an Appaloosa. I sat bare-legged in a pair of shorts behind my cousin on her saddle. It was a short ride but long enough to get saddle sores… I learned a lesson there. Always wear long pants.

    When I rode that horse, Appaloosas were featured in the television show “Bonanza,” which was popular at the time. My cousin raised Appaloosas, so I thought she was especially marvelous. I wanted a horse, too, but there was no room in our little yard…

    Down the road from where I live now, is a ranch that raises paint horses, which remind me of those Appaloosas, just bigger spots!

    1. It was such a treat to do this reflection, Catherine; I absolutely love the personality…!

      I love freedom of thought, of action, of variety; indeed, I too believe that life is to be enjoyed in all its wonder. To have those desires stifled would be such a crime…

      So glad you identified and enjoyed… I have googled the ‘Paint Horse’; what a lovely looking horse it is. I’m being inspired to do its reflection; I’m sure it will be yet another surprise. Horses are such fascinating creatures.. 🙂

        1. That’s great to hear, Catherine. 😉
          You know; I’ve been listening to some of those you’ve been ‘liking’ over the past little while, and when I do it can be like hearing them afresh. I’ve been enjoying it along with you! 🙂
