Almost one year has passed... one year since we picked up the pony mask made of leather from the Fury-Fantasy Workshop
. A real masterpiece of artwork, and customemade especially for me.
My heart is still racing as soon as I start to think about the night we returned from the workshop. Warm candle light was lighting my Love's room as she asked me to kneel down. It was our first testrun with the new pony mask. We still didn't have a zentai catsuit, the horse tack and harness were still in the Fury-Fantasy workshop for the final touch and so was the tail.
But this evening wasn't about perfection anyway. This evening was to carefully set foot onto new terrain. The moment she closed the mask around my head I knew I wouldn't be able to say a word even though there was no gag to silence me. I just knew I couldn't say a word.
The first thing my Love did was working on my posture. Her hands were touching me here and there, encouraging each muscle to bring my body into the right position. I was surprised how hard I had to work just to stand upright. Did I mention that she is a professional physical therapist? But not only for humans, for horses, too. And it looks like she can add "pony" to her business card.
As we had no harness she applied some ropes as replacement. And soon she was guiding me through the appartment, directing me with the reigns and her voice. Because deviant from real horses ponys can not see the body language of their trainers.
We stopped after maybe 20 minutes.
Twenty long and sweet minutes.
A small step - yet a very big one in our relationship.
The myth of witches turning men into animals is at least as old as the tale of Odysseus' journeys, if not older. We discovered Abraxas in the late summer of 2011 when we bought mask and tack from the Fury-Fantasy Workshop. It had always been the dream of my beloved wife Arressia to handle a human pony. Later, while telling each others stories on our long roadtrips, we learned that Abraxas is actually a Hexen-Horse and Arressia is the one to call him out of me. Our life is rich and full of fantasy.
