Case Note No. 18; Tues June 6, 2023
Hello again, it's me, Ms. AAngyl. Where I come from, time doesn't exist, but I know that for you, it's been a while since you last heard from me. I am dropping in today to update you on some family news since I last wrote in September 2021. Of course you may know that I am joined on this side by Panama NA, who is now known as Pangylla. She is the beautiful mother of Presence Mac V, my feisty little cousin who turned one year old on March 23, 2023 and is already the star of two music videos by Evie! Panama was the bay mare I told you about that I found for Margaret. The one who had fallen in love with my cousin, Major Mac V, and was having his baby. Pangylla and I watch over Presence every day from above.
What you don't know is that before Panama left so suddenly on July 20, 2022, she arranged for Presence to be watched over on Earth not only by her human caregivers but also by her Great Aunt Rika on her mother's side. Poor Panama suddenly developed a twisted colon when Presence was not quite four months old. She was rushed to surgery but on her deathbed, within a minute of Margaret having to tell the surgeon to let her go, Panama's departing spirit contacted Siggy, her former owner. Margaret was in the grocery store in Cape Breton when she got the news from the vet in California and had to make the sad but humane decision. Suddenly her phone rang, and it was Siggy, calling from Texas. She introduced herself and asked in a cheery voice, "How are Panama and Presence?" Margaret had never spoken with Siggy, so her call came as quite a shock on top of just losing Panama. The two of them spoke for an hour, consoling each other and cherishing the memory of the beloved mare who was only nine years old.
But Panama had a plan for her daughter all worked out. Two days later, Margaret got another call from Siggy, who directed her to a website, saying, "Margaret, you have to look at this mare!" She did, and there for sale she saw a beautiful 15-year old red bay mare named Euphorika IA, who goes by "Rika." Rika is Panama's aunt on her father's side! She looked beautiful in the photos and video and she was offered for sale by Evie, who takes the wonderful photos and videos of horses at the ranch. Later that day, a huge unicorn floatie appeared at the beach in Little Judique Harbour in Cape Breton and a rainbow appeared over her travel trailer. Seeing these as positive signs, Margaret eagerly decided to ask Rika to join the family. We unicorns are all connected and have a way of making sure that everything works out.
And I make sure that Margaret sees regular evidence of my continued presence in her life. She spent the fall and winter in California at the ranch working with Presence and Rika. If you have read Margaret's book, you may recall that when I met her in 2016, my barn name was Doris. When Margaret bought me in 2017, she immediately changed my name to Angel. I like to joke around a bit, so while she was at the ranch, I made sure that they bought the right brand of bedding for the stalls- Dorris, of course, of course!
Until next time... AAngyl.
