Desy Campbell's pony was despondent and ailing. And, despite many attempted remedies, no progress was made until EFT was applied. Note how Desy tapped herself while keeping one hand on her pony. Many people do it this way, although it also works to tap directly on the pony.

I bought a pony at an auction on 5 years ago. Since one never knows the history of animals at auction, all one has to go by is instinct, a few objective facts, and maybe a veterinarian's approval. I went by instinct and a few obvious facts: this pony was small, I saw that he could pull a small cart with people in it. The price was a bit high, but I was sure he'd pull his weight at my place. So I bought him. He may have been about 5 yrs old according to his teeth.

The following year, J.E.B. spent the month in his stall, lying down and hardly getting up. I took his hay and water to him; I brushed him. He was depressed, sad, and hurting. I began a series, a multitude of things actually, to bring my pony back. I found a vet to do acupuncture; I gave him Reiki; I'd mix herbs and supplements; I used vibrational tonal protocols; I used magnets.

Each season I experimented with another concoction that I'd feed him by mouth. J.E.B. eagerly lapped whatever mix I made. I often despaired he would not be whole again.

I got another pony. He fell in love. He still hurt. I could see it in his stiff body and his blank eyes; my blacksmith could see it in his feet.

While I've been getting the EFT information for a year at least, (I downloaded the EFT manual) I never thought to 'try' it on J.E.B, until almost 2 months ago. I placed one hand on his back and tapped myself, choosing a variety of affirmations.

I tapped several days in a row for his pain.

I tapped for his anger.

I tapped for his previous lifetimes.

I tapped him for previous abuse and mistreatment.

I tapped for his ease and comfort.

I tapped for his safety and care.

I tapped for his having plentiful hay and water.

I knew when the affirmation hit a chord with him - usually when I was doing the eye movements with the karate chop point - J.E.B.'s body would shudder. He'd look back at me and turn back to eating his hay.

He hasn't been in pain since then (almost two months).

I've begun training him again; he's going to pull a cart again.
