Case Study of Sara with The Pet Communicator Barb Borkowski

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   August 25, 2012 11:31


I have a life long interest in energy healing.  Energy healing and animal communication are fascinating so when Barb and I met I definitely wanted her input on our mare Sara.

Barb was very willing and asked for a recent photo, I send the following video clip and photo to her.

My mare’s name is “Simply Sara”. 

Here she is earlier this summer

This is Barb's response.....

Hi Bonnie,
When I look at the picture of Sara, the following comes to mind:
Sara does not realize how big she is. As funny as it may sound, she thinks she is a dog! While viewing the video of Sara, that really got my attention. To me, she shows some canine mannerisms.
My attention is drawn to the area where Sara's liver is. There is energy congestion there. My impression is that her liver is slightly smaller than the average for her size.  With that, it feels like her liver is working hard to rid the body of toxins. I suggest checking into alfalfa for its liver cleansing properties. (Please consult a veterinarian! I am not an expert on animals, just the messenger).
Sara is extra sensitive to electromagnetic fields. Being close to power lines and electrical appliances causes a nervous, jittery sensation in her abdomen.
A feeling of sadness surrounds Sara's forehead.  "My owner thinks too much and doesn't follow her heart.
Sometimes Sara's left front lower leg has tenderness. Her right hip gets stiff with slight soreness, especially when it rains.
Sara desires for you to "follow your heart". You deserve happiness after all you've been through.
I hope this helps you, Bonnie. If you have questions, please let me know.

Barb and I will be working together with Sara, check back for regular updates.

Animal Communication

Animal Communication – Part 1

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   August 25, 2012 07:45








Many people have heard the term “animal communicator”. Some understand the meaning while others do not.  My goal is to help explain what animal communication is and how it may benefit your beloved four-legged friend.
Several writers have interviewed me. They all asked the same question: When did you first realize you could communicate with animals? There is a picture of me placing my hand on the top of the head of my great-grandfather’s Collie when I was two years old. I sensed that his head hurt. I grew up with several Beagles that my dad used for hunting rabbits. Spending time with them was my preferred activity. If one of them did not feel well, I felt the discomfort in my body. Some people take classes to learn how to communicate with animals. I did not. Knowing what animals need is natural for me.
My approach to helping pets is by tuning in to their subtle energy field. All living things are composed of energy. In the next article, I will share with you my journey of learning about energy fields in humans and in animals.

Barb Borkowski is owner of The Healing Journey in Ohio, USA. She is an animal communicator and energy therapist. Barb’s healing work with animals was featured on Fox 8 News in Cleveland, Ohio. She was also a guest on the Robin Swoboda Show, a morning TV show, in Cleveland. Barb’s educational background includes energy therapy, massage therapy and nursing.

Thyme Growing

Robin Davis is a lifelong horse lover who founded of the Holistic Horse Care Cooperative ( and, alongside of her husband, is owner/operator of a holistic horsekeeping ranch in Northern Colorado called Mustang Hollow.  Robin loves to spend time with her horses any way she can.  Her current herd of six consists of 1 Mustang, 1 Warmblood, 1 OTTB, 1 Quarter horse, 1 Arabian and 1 Welsh cross.  Robin loves to trailride, has competed in Dressage and has started and tuned up many horses using natural horsemanship methods.

Flies, mosquitoes, gnats, oh my!  It is most certainly fly season in overdrive right now.  Here are a few tips from my barnyard on handling those pesky pests for humans and the horses.
I add garlic and diatomaceous earth to the horses soaked pellets.  The garlic helps repel the bugs and the diatomaceous earth helps deal with internal parasites as well as those who are compelled to lay their eggs in manure.  In Hilary Page Self’s book “A Modern Horse Herbal”, she recommends 6-8 fresh, crushed cloves daily or 15-30 grams of pure garlic powder daily.  It’s recommended to not feed garlic to nursing mares.
On the outside of my horses I use an essential oil blend – Young Living’s Purification helps repel the flies and helps stop the itching.
I’ve also found that adding fresh thyme to my horses feed will help with those itchy areas.  I grow a patch and use it fresh.  When the thyme doesn’t have anything to offer I add a few tablets of the homeopathic remedy Apis to their water.
These same remedies are good for humans too.  What I like best as a topical deterrent on my body is Lavender essential oil.  Straight out of the bottle and onto my body relaxes me and helps keep those bugs away.
Here in Colorado we have at least 2 more months before first frost and those flies are at their worst in the fall.  Hope some of these tips help you and your horsey friends.
