|Epona is revered through legend and folklore as a Goddess of compassion of love. She is the protector of all horses, fondness for mares and their foals. She carries the Horn of Plenty (abundance). In this picture I chose to depict her in a happy moment during the early morning as the suns rays begin to warm the grass and air. Everyday Epona visited Sky (the mare) until she was ready to give birth. The mare Sky allowed Epona to tend to her during that fragile moment of giving birth. Soft words spoken and gentle hands, soothed the mare during this time, forging a friendship between them both of mutual trust and respect. Now that the foal is doing very well, his curiosity of Epona gets the best of him. Sensing his mothers relaxed posture, he boldly steps forward to meet her. Sniffing her hand, he touches her for the first time. Epona makes no move to touch him but allows him to explore her hand and sleeve. She talks to him softly all the while.
"He is beautfiul Sky" Epona says to Sky smiling down at the little foal.
“Lets have a look then” Epona says to Sky
Lifting up each hoof she cleans out the packed mud, carefully checking to make sure that Sky is doing well. Satisfied, Epona gives the mare a scratch behind the ears and combs out her mane with her fingers. Sky has come to love the attention and grooming that Epona does for her. Turning her head she presses Epona into her front shoulder hugging her, wrapping her arms around the mare she hugs her back resting her head into Sky’s neck..
This is a moment filled with love and gratitude for them both.
