I have always been a bit 'fey' so I am not a disbeliever in psychics however, there are a lot of clever people who are good at reading body language and will come out with all sorts of things that make it seem as if they are able to tell you things that they shouldn't know.
Ever watch the Mentalist or John Edward - two different programmes but both making good points!
I have yet to meet anyone who has been able to read an animal!
Some years ago some people brought an animal psychic from the USA to the UK to read their racehorse.
This was a good jump racer that was refusing to start and generally being nappy.
This woman told them all sorts of things like the horse wanted a different stable, he needed more carrots and certain other things being done for him. I cannot remember exactly what the horse wanted but it was all, to my thinking, rubbish.
The horse's wishes were carried out, guess what? He was still nappy so never kept his side of the bargain.
These people brought the psychic to see our horses and their other youngsters which were kept here.
I had a 5 year old TB that had a virus which he could not get over. He was badly effected by it. He was miserable, his eyes and coat were dull. He did not look anything like any of the other horses.
This woman stopped and told me that this poor horse had been so overworked. He had been galloped around all his life and when he jumped socked in the mouth. Mostly ridden by men, he hated them for the abuse.
During all this 'conversation' I kept my poker face, I never gave anything away and let her waffle. She went on for nearly 30 minutes, at the end I took great delight telling her that the horse had never been ridden by a man, he had never been galloped and never been jumped.
Give the woman her due, she immediately said "All this was in a previous life!'
As for the other horse, he came to me, he was misaligned so that was corrected. There was nothing wrong with him other than the fact he was bored with race training. A season following Foxhounds, and he was as happy as Larry, he went back into training with a different trainer and went on to win several races.
