I have had lots of animal communication experiences and they are getting more frequent as I get older.
Many years ago when I was younger, I had Lancer looked after by my friend (at the time) for a few weeks while I moved house from Wales back to England, after I finished uni. I kept thinking Lancer is unhappy, something is wrong, but she didn't ring me to say he was poorly, (I didn't have her number as everything got in a mess as we moved, and I couldn't find anything) so I thought it was just me being paranoid. I went up a few weeks later to get him and I find him skin and bone. The weight just gone, he was so fat when I left him there. I just knew
something had been wrong. I took years to forgive myself for not taking my intuition seriously enough and for not going back to him sooner. It turns out we had a deeper bond than even I thought and he was pining for me. It was hard but I learned much about us.
I also had one time when I was going to leave him out in the field for one more night of freedom before I started to bring him back in overnight again as I thought the grass was getting too rich. I thought "I should bring him in tonight", but I then thought "no it's ok, he will be fine, I am being paranoid, he will enjoy one more night". Well imagine my horror when I get there in the morning and he has an attack of laminitis. I was so, so, so guilty.
Lucky it was not bad, and I learned alot about laminitis because of it, but ever since then if I feel twitchy about a feed or leaving him an hour longer, or bringing him in, I do it, and he has had healthy feet ever since. Thank goodness I learned my lesson, even if it was the hard way.
I am not a bad pony owner honest!
I have also had a similar experience to Franziska's teacher. I was watching Anja Beran's dvd, and was thinking how much I would love to teach Monty all these beautiful dressage movements. I swear he was over my shoulder watching the tv as the next day he comes out of his stable arching his neck and looking just like the horses I had been watching. It is suddenly easier to get him moving and he suddenly loves the shoulder in. The oddest thing is my friend who lives a whole ocean away from me emailed me and told me she saw a picture of a black horse doing some very, very fancy moves, while she was sending healing to my old boy Lancer. I say that can only be Monty letting you know what he is going to do when he grows up! He now decides he does want to do dressage after all. I can only think it was him watching the dvd and he liked what he saw!
I was trying to figure out how to get him to do Spanish walk, and I was standing next to him and thinking about it in my head. When all of a sudden he flings his leg out high and forwrds and says "is that what you mean?" I was shocked! and very pleased.
I also had a pony demanding
I give her a massage and some healing. I thought I was imagining it as I had my back to her and kept sweeping the yard. I hear a very clear, grumpy voice saying "I know you can hear me, stop ignoring me." I turn around thinking it is still all in my head and she is STARING at me, very, very intently with her ears pricked. It was very scary.
I think she was making sure me, the stupid deaf human, got the message loud and clear. I say "ok, I will ask your owner" (as we are friends, so I know it is ok to say crazy things like that!) and she stops looking at me and goes back to eating. That mare never looked at me like that before or since!
