Gill Evans is an Equine Massage Therapist in Africa who has been professionally treating horses for 20 years.
I was on the farm when I heard a commotion coming from a nearby paddock, and when I entered I found a thoroughbred filly standing and shaking in deep trauma. It had just been bitten in the neck by a cobra; unfortunately they are all over the place. There was no point in calling the vet. They had no drugs for humans in Zimbabwe, never mind horses, and in any case we were far out in the country and death usually occurs within a few hours in 95% of the cases.
I decided to treat the horse with what Jock had taught me, I relaxed the whole upper area and performed the lymphatic drainage procedures on the entire neck and around the punctures. There was a slight swelling, and the horse was going into shock.
The next day the horse was still standing; the swelling now very large and stretching from the top of the throat right down to the elbows. I continued to do the Equine Touch using the Bowen Moves. The next day the horse was still alive and once again I continued to do the treatment. As I felt there was now a chance I contacted a friend who is a homeopath who treated the filly also. I continued with the Equine Touch treatment, the swelling was going down but around the puncture area there was a large area of putrefied flesh. A week later this area burst, spilling out rotten flesh, blood and pus.
I continued to treat the horse daily with the treatment and slowly the hole began to close to the point where six weeks after the strike the filly is well on the way to full recovery, the poison in the system is still evident by small abscesses around the hole but other than that the filly is free from pain and showing no ill effects. If anything, this has shown me what an amazing modality the Equine Touch is for helping a horse to heal itself against what are amazing odds.
