I talked with one last fall who was very highly recommended. You make an appointment and then call her at your appt time. She asks your horses barn name, age, and color. That's it.
I think she charged like $25 for the first 15 minutes or something along those lines.
I was quite amazed at the things she said about my horse Red, and about my colt Shotgun. And ..... she brought up my old horse Beau who was about to be put down in 2 days. I never said a word about him to her.
It was a very interesting experience, although I'm not going to do it on a regular basis by any means, but I was really amazed at the things she brought up and the things we discussed. There's a lot of things that there's no way she could have known, even if she had tried to research me and my horses on the internet.
She also has a knack for finding soreness or pain issues, and usually, when taken to a vet or necessary checkup, they find an issue right where she said.
With Red, she said he either had a problem with his right jaw or the right palate. She wasn't quite sure what he was showing her, but it was around the right side of his mouth. When I had Red's first dental visit done about a month or two later, guess what? He had a hook on the right side. I never said a word to the dentist about what I suspected.
So I think there are some true animal communicators out there ..... but the vast majority of them are posers.
