When we think about ‘listening to our horse’ or animal communication, many of us automatically think about telepathy. Receiving pictures, impressions, feelings, ideas, or entire thought packages from our horse. But we also need to remember how horses communicate with each other! They rarely just use telepathy alone, but rather, they utilize the entire spectrum of communication open to them.
So when you go out to connect with your horses, or to see where they’re at, how they’re doing – maybe one of them is injured or sick – practice paying attention to ALL the information in their world. Nothing can substitute for quality time simply observing everything you can perceive. Meandering along with them as they graze, doing a thorough exploration of their entire physical environment, noticing what all the other elements and creatures in their environment are up to, and so on.
Note: This means your phone is turned OFF or left in your car. Even the teens and youth who help out with the horses automatically put their phones in Airplane Mode when they’re here – they all intuit that they cannot be fully present, nor receive the herd’s gifts, if they are distracted by their phones beeping or vibrating.
This video is an example of me doing exactly that on this summer afternoon – notice all the important information I receive simply from observing all there is to be observed…

coconut oil for creatures great &small Rx ALL conditions…topically et internally
Yes! We offered coconut oil first actually, but she refused it. And we wondered if it would have exacerbated the sunburn? She has had coconut oil before and she also likes to eat chunks of it!
I wonder is the wasp/hornet energy feels the general drawing away of energy from the barn. The horses are going to the ranch, you mentioned the trees are drawing away to prepare for clear cutting, and your energy is divided now with the ranch. Kesia is gone, Güliz is gone, you are going — all is drawing away from this once thriving ecosystem and energy hub. Maybe the wasp/hornet energy feels that too, taking itself off into the trees and away from the barn.
YES!! The entire place feels like there’s just an air of waiting, combined with withdrawal. I still don’t know what’s going to happen for this winter… I may bring Zorra back so there are three horses there. Or I may bring Aude and Kaliah up to the ranch. The pathway is not clear yet.
Hello to all! From watching the video I gather as if Kaliah and Aude were giving some space to the new ecosystem that is working on finding a new balance after one species (horses) have been reduced in numbers (and eventually completely removed from that area). Life is looking for a new way of coexisting :). Very fascinating!
I like that perspective Daniela – of the horses actively supporting the ecosystem to reorganize 🙂 I also see that you just purchased the Fierce Feminine workshop – I would LOVE to hear what you think of it whenever you’re ready to share!
Such a changing environment! So fascinating to see this space with only the two mares left. We have been on this land now for 8 years and although our environment is not as diverse because of climate and drought it has been very interesting to observe and feel and witness the ebb and flow of the rhythms of the land! I am curious if you have felt any obvious concerns from Aude and Kaliah being left there now that all the others are gone?
I haven’t felt any concerns from them. But certainly they seem bored. The horses told me years ago that there needs to be a minimum of three horses to be herd. But now I can see/feel what they mean. Two horses is very calm and peaceful, but all the dynamics that define a herd and the way it functions are missing. They were very different when Zo was still here. There’s a certain energy, tension, variety that enters when you move from 2 to 3. I (and many other parents) have also noticed this with children. Two is company, but three is a party!
Wonderful 🙂 Jini, I have a question coming from an experience I recently had with a herd during a (sort of) therapy session. I had the impression that they were telling me a story consisting of a couple of elements, and showed it as if it was a pantomime or a dance. It was coherent, convincing and… some days later I received information from an archive which confirmed at least part of it. But: do horses tell stories, and do it jointly as a herd?? Until now, I thought they communicated more by way of single images and feelings. Here, it was a sequence. What’s your take on it?
Hi Justine, yes a sequence, movie, multi-sensory vision etc are all normal telepathic communication.
I often get what I call “thought packages” – they are packages of all kinds of different information, in any combination of forms. There are no rules! And some horses communicate more in one way, than another. And often several horses will communicate at once, or even as an entire herd. It’s all good! xo
How interesting, thank you!
