I Hear You
There are times during a telepathic consultation with an animal that information "just flies in." I start getting images, impressions, opinions or feelings that seem random: neither the animal's person nor I have asked about them, but they often reveal something important.
It happens all the time. Most recently, I was talking with a handsome Irish Sport Horse, Quinn, about issues related to his training. Before I could even broach the questions his rider had submitted, Quinn interrupted me to convey that his hay seemed dry, with a lot of twigs and indigestible stems. He said he really didn't care for it, and asked whether it could be dipped in water, to make it more palatable.
A few days later, I received a photo depicting a corner of Quinn's stall that made me realize that I'd definitely been talking with the right horse. It showed a fresh pile of manure neatly placed on top of the offending hay. In case anyone hadn't gotten the message, Quinn wanted to make his assessment of the forage perfectly clear: it would do for bedding, but definitely not for eating!
