At this time there is no good way or right time to share the following news with all of you. I know many of you loved this gal, and I certainly did.
Lovely, vibrant, quiet Dizzy peacefully found her way to the horse ancestors on February 6th. She did not suffer. Sienna Hawk found her shortly after her passing. Dizzy was the quiet one, always on the edge, four years ago isolated. When we arrived to this property she came into the paddock one day and as she came up to me I heard: “May I die here.” Which I replied “of course but I want you to live here for a long time.” Later of course in my human mind I changed that sentence to “May I live in this paddock.” It just felt better.
Dizzy did not die her “her paddock” or the far west paddock where she has chosen all winter. Instead, on the night of February 5th, she chose the paddock that Corazon often has, the paddock where Ginger was born, a paddock that Dizzy never spent her nights in. This paddock put her close to the rest of the herd.
I would like to say this lovely Mare left this world with her heart healed. To be honest, the best I can say is that after a life filled with drama she was able to spend her last four years in peace. I know her heart opened at the ranch, in the work, and with all of you. There is not doubt in my mind she left the world as a healer for others and feeling appreciated.
May you take a moment today to meditate, send her blessings, and open your heart to all of life’s transitions, as this Beautiful Red Mare’s spirit moves on to the spirit world.
“Rest in deep peace beautiful Dizzy, you are loved and appreciated.”
Thank you Dizzy your beautiful soul and for all you have given. Susanne Søndergaard Andersen
Thank you Kathy for the day yesterday, for all you shared with us. You’re the greatest teacher in being with what is. I felt your grief, I feel with you deep in my heart. Light and love to both of you.
Thank you Kathy for sharing about Dizzy’s life and new journey. I remember her as a kind, gentle, healing soul. She was the first one of your herd with whom I had worked, the first day of my Level 1. I remember her very fondly, and with deep gratitude. Thank you for caring for her these past few years, and allowing her to find her place in such a peaceful herd of elevated beings. Thank you too for her beautiful owner, who had attended our Level 4 workshops. Dizzy is with all of you, and us too, continuing her important work in supporting us from the other side. Christina Layer
She was such a beautiful, gentle, and kind being. Thank you Dizzy for your gifts, teachings, and finding your way to Kathy’s herd. And thank you Kathy for being who you are and honoring this horse, yourself, and our herd in such a stunningly beautiful manner. DeeDee Fite McMillan
Ms Dizzy I’ve known for many years and just wanted to say that when I saw her last fall she was very happy. She loved he home and had come so far in being loved and part of an amazing herd. She will be missed but lived a great life. Me and my herd sending you both hugs and love, Shannon Doa Henshaw
I will always remember Dizzy as the one who taught me about beauty. She was a beautiful girl, inside and out. I know she was loved and at peace. I see her running free with the herd over the rainbow bridge. Go in beauty Ms Dizzy, go in peace. Marry Livingston

Thank you sweet Dizzy for holding such remarkable safe space and to you Kathy for sharing your truth and your vulnerability with us. Sending love to your heart. Victoria Haffer
I have been sitting with my coffee this morning planning educator trainings and meditating on the healing nature of horse-then this news arrives and I am reminded of a beautiful soul who shared so deeply with gentle grace and power and my heart is torn yet also filled with love and gratitude. Go gently sweet Dizzy and, so too, all of us who had the privilege of learning from you. Kerry Loupe
As we all continue on our journey home, we will miss the earthly presence of Dizzy. Knowing she is waiting with all the others who touched us in such a perfect way is that beautiful light that guides us. Kathy, your loss, your grief, and the kindness you have given this beautiful mare will be held high in comfort and love. Through tears I am wishing you, sweet Dizzy, a beautiful journey home. Debby Dillard
Miss Dizzy, your gentle sweetness made an impression on my heart. Thank you for being a great teacher. Bless you Kathy for giving her a kind and loving home for her last years. You are in my heart and thoughts today. Sandi Ball Wetenkamp
I am sorry Kathy. Dizzy was a wonderful equine healer and teacher, and you were both fortunate to find each other. May sweet memories of her live in your heart. Susan Borutzki
I wanted to say thank you so much to all of you for sharing all these sweet words about Dizzy. It makes me so happy to be reminded of how dearly she was held by everyone.
Yesterday was a very hard day, and going out to the herd this morning was hard as well. I stood with Moon for a while thinking about all the happy memories I had of Dizzy. She loved to bug me when I did barn chores; sticking her head in the feed room to see what was up, following me around like a puppy while I went between the barns, and sneaking bites of hay when I swept. I loved letting her out to pasture to watch her roll and buck and run. Just the other day when I was here she took off with the herd playing in the snow, looking as young and spirited as Ginger. She still had that spirit to her last day! Becky and I both had a laugh together about it while saying our goodbyes.
I’m so glad to know her, and that so many others did too. She was so well loved by so many. I’ll miss her, but all my memories of her won’t be forgotten. Sienna Hawk
So sorry Kathy. She did have the perfect life and she knew it. Lisa de Kramer

Blessings abound for Dizzy having found her way to you, Kathy. And for your having found your way to her. Spend g a little extra time today loving all our 4-leggeds here in honor of Dizzy. Virginia Rhoads (Virgina and Dizzy pictured on right)
Thank you, beautiful, sweet Dizzy for sharing your glorious spirit with all of us. Kathy, my deepest sympathies are with you. Pamela Hunter
So glad to have met and worked with Dizzy. She was a quiet presence and always giving. Sending love and hugs for all beings feeling her loss in this world while Dizzy now runs free! Jackie Hibbard
Feeling blessed to have taken part in honoring Dizzy yesterday with Kathy, Marry and the track-B-heard at level 3 in Arizona. And forever thankful for what she gave me during my session with her in October, one of the most powerful and transforming moments of my life. Dizzy forever in my heart. Åsa Kastberg
I am so sad to hear of her passing and send my deepest condolences and thoughts to you and the whole herd. I am also joyed at reading your words for the life you gave her and the time you had with her and simply the space she had with you and the herd. She was certainly a special soul and I am glad to have met her in my time there and blessed to have the experiences I had with her. I know she will forever be in your heart and I will certainly never forget her. Britt Keele
Kathy, Dizzy will be missed. But, I’m so glad she came to live her final years at your homestead, where she could be heard so clearly. Love, Stephanie Barnard
Kathy I am tearfully sending you all love filled hugs. I remember Dizzy worked really hard of what the work was all about. Thru the year I remember her also questioning how to trust herself to be the teacher she is. Liz Markusfeld
Words, for me, are hard to find when a horse crosses over…something about their great size and mythic margins makes them seem interminable…that they should and could somehow stay with us forever. When they are gone…so much, such bigness, like the sky … is gone with them. What remains is the bigness… that space that they create within us. Dear Kathy, may you and your herd rest in the space that Dizzy built in you. Mari Rubens
Tears of deep sadness as I read this, Kathy. I feel so fortunate to have met Dizzy, and I will always remember how moving it was when she allowed us to do Sacred Painting with her… such a dear, sweet, lovely soul…and beautiful with her shiny red coat. Thank you for giving her the home she needed and asked for, and for sharing her with so many of us. Seeing her, you, Inkie, and the herd in glowing light. Carole Meade Rodon
we love you Miss Dizzy– safe travels and come to us in
our dreams . . . until we meet again . . .
