I have been using my pet communicator, Rebecca, to better understand my gelding, Kota, for many years now. We are VERY careful when meeting her not to give ANY details about how Kota is doing, what he's been up to, etc. etc. because... let's face it, I want to see exactly how legit this is. The creepiest thing she's told about my horse is the following....
Kota is turned out in a herd every day with 15+ horses. His best friend for years was a big liver chestnut gelding whom, very sadly, had to pass on last spring due to a fatal accident in the pasture. Multiple people told me that when they found the liver chestnut, he was standing at the gate bleeding from his skull, literally leaning on Kota, who was quietly standing near his friend. When they brought the injured horse in to help him, my Kota suddenly became very frantic and started whinnying and pacing crazily.
Last week was the first time I met up with Rebecca in roughly a year, so she knew nothing about Kota's friend. One of our questions for Kota was (in exact wording) "There have been a lot of new horses added to his herd. How does he feel about them?" And Rebecca tells us that Kota wasn't concerned about the new horses, but he was upset about what happened to his old friend. We asked, "What old friend?" and she responded "He's a big horse with a white face. He's not exactly a chestnut..... he's quite a bit darker. Like a liver. And Kota says something happened to him one day in the field, and he never came back. Kota wants to know if he's okay?"
Needless to say, my mom and I were crying like newborn babies. Brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it. But the point is, how would she know all that? Especially to say he was liver? Let's face it... there aren't THAT many livers in the world, so to pick that as her very first choice and get it right is creepy. And how would she know something happened to it, and my horse was really THAT upset about it? I get goosebumps just thinking about it...
