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.
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.
