There a lot of FAKE animal pyschics out there, and just a handful of true helpful ones. Sounds like you got a obviously fake one.

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.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

She sounds like the one I used. She used to charge $25 for 15 and just upped the price to $30 recently.

ETD: I just told her my horse's name, age and color. Not the barn. She asked if my horse was the dark bay in the paddock or the red bay in the field. There are only 2 bays with a star at my barn. The dark bay is in a paddock and the red bay is in the field O_O

The one my mother in law wants to bring over doesn't charge. She says that what she does she does for the benefit of the pets and their owners. I may give her a try and let you guys know.

Okay - My opinion may not be wanted here. But I'm just going to leave this video - I encourage everyone to watch it. This man invited these COMPLETE strangers in to his tent and went on NOTHING but a name. And just LOOK at what he found - old injuries, tattoos, BANK ACCOUNT NUMBERS. So for those of you who say "Oh I just gave him X information" - don't think that means there's not way to look things up based on that.

(Technically this is a PSA about the dangers of having your personal information public. But it works in this situation too).

There are scam artists, we know that.

However, there are people who do have gifts. Just because we don't understand it doesn't mean the gift isn't true.

I've got two stories on animal communicators.

There is a gal on another horse email list who others had been getting her to read their horses. Always seemed spot on.

One day I mentioned that I would LOVE to believe that a perfect stranger hundreds or thousands of miles away could communicate with a horse they'd never seen but I just couldn't. I said if she would "talk" to my horse and tell me something that there was no way she could know then I would believe. She said fair enough and what would I like her to ask my horse. She required only a picture of the horse.

I told her to ask my horse what was new here. What I was going for was my mare had just gotten her first ever shoes (we've since gone back to bare) and the fact that she was now trail riding.

She came back and told me that my mare showed her her feet and said that she had new things on them. The mare also showed her something fuzzy and a golden brown. She said she couldn't tell what it was.

She described my mare's stall as an outside stall (it is, it's built onto the barn) and said the sun slants down across the door as it goes down (it does).

I told her she was right on on the shoes and the stall but there was no fuzzy brown thing. She insisted that is what the mare showed her. We let it go with that.
The next day I went BONG!! My husband had bought me a fuzzy golden brown throw that I really liked..I wondered.

I told the lady about it but told her the mare had never seen it. She said awww but you did and she can see what you see.

I have to believe this lady.

The second story was a friend met a "communicator" and invited her to ride with us. ROFL what a joke. The communicator communicated constantly with my friends horse. She told my friend that her horse said my friend rode like a sack of potatos. She told my friend that her mare wanted to have a baby (this woman happens to have several stallions at stud). She would walk by my friends horse, look at her and laugh and look at my friend as if they were having private jokes at my friends expense.

Needless to say this weirdo has never been invited back to ride.

Just DO it and be happy that you can!

Interesting terms! I've never heard them before!
Really, I think I'd only consider myself scammed/conned if I had bought into it in the first place, or went to do it again after this time. I fully knew just how ridiculous it was, but it was excellent entertainment! The only time I'd consider doing it again was if I had a group of friends with me, and we just wanted a laugh.
Rude, but true. I've got no respect for those that don't earn their living honestly.
