In this episode of All My Children Wear Fur Coats, we had the privilege of speaking to Nancy Zintsmaster, the Co-Founder and Master Trainer of The Resnick Method Liberty Horsemanship. 

Carolyn Resnick, the founder, and her business partner, Nancy, testify to the transformational power of the Resnick Method. Like many, Nancy had been drawn to horses since childhood and sought their company every chance she got. But it wasn’t until she found Carolyn’s book called Naked Liberty that she understood the depth of connection.

The academy is meant to empower people who need help connecting to their horse’s heart and help people understand how to use horses as our guides for self-realization to address the whole being, mind, body, and spirit. 

The mission of The Resnick Method Liberty Horsemanship is to help grow the new world consciousness ready to receive this next step in valuing horses as teachers and healers, making the horse a true partner in our journey of self-healing, personal growth, and transformation.

“When you enter a horse’s space with this method, the horse knows that you speak his language. So the results are more profound…

When we don’t understand the instincts of the horse, then the horse doesn’t really know that he can trust us.” – Nancy

The story of Nancy and The Resnick Method Liberty Horsemanship is fabulous – hearing about this kind of transformational experience changes lives forever.

In this episode of All My Children Wear Fur Coats, we had the privilege of speaking to Angela Ardolino, founder of CBD Dog Health. CBD Dog Health offers high quality, all-natural, medical cannabis products designed specifically for pets.

In 2015, Angela was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and she was prescribed Humira. Humira is a medicine that’s prescribed simply for all auto-immune diseases.  Upon inspection, Angela realized that Humira is very commonly linked to Lymphoma. At this point, Angela knew she had to turn elsewhere for help.

Angela lives a very holistic life, so she immediately turned to nature to find the best possible option for her. Nature’s answer was the cannabis plant.

Soon after using cannabis medically, her joint pain washed away. That wasn’t the only change Angela felt. She realized that her stress and anxiety levels had gone down as well. She was also able to sleep better, and overall quality of life had improved.

Angela went down a rabbit hole trying to figure out if anyone else was having these experiences with cannabis. She stumbled upon Canna-Moms. Canna-Moms is a group of mothers around the county using cannabis medically to treat their kids. These moms are treating anything from cancer to seizures using cannabis. They’ve found that using cannabis has greatly improved quality of life for the kids and their parents.

In this episode of All My Children Wear Fur Coats, we had the privilege of speaking to Kathy Boyle. Kathy is the founder and president of Chapin Hill Advisors. Chapin Hill Advisors, Inc. Kathy is passionate about animal rescue and educating children about healthy alternatives for better living.

Kathy joins us today to talk about the Golden Project.

Kathy has been very passionate about animal rescue for the last 25 years. She has always had a lot of her own animals, ranging anywhere from guinea pigs and chinchillas to dogs and horses. Kathy brings to our attention that most rescues lack organization.

Most rescues are volunteer-based and bring in very little revenue, this makes it hard for a rescue to stay functional and efficient. Kathy’s frustration with rescues is that they do not run like businesses. They do not have systems in place to keep things running smoothly. They don’t use adoption software or email marketing software that is readily available and at their fingertips.
