Willow can be difficult to spot in horses because there are always alternative remedies such as Wild Oat and Gentian that might apply. In general, Willow horses tend to be introverted and seem introspective. This is often the case with cold-blooded breeds, which appear to react less to their environments and companions.
Things to look for:
- Lack of enthusiasm
- Lack of response to their surroundings and other horses
“For those who have suffered adversity or misfortune and find these difficult to accept, without complaint or resentment, as they judge life much by the success which it brings. They feel that they have not deserved so great a trial, that it was unjust, and they become embittered. They often take less interest and less activity in those things of life which they had previously enjoyed.” Dr. Edward Bach ~
