I do have an ability to communicate with animals sometimes...Have done it with pets belonging to family and friends....For some reason, my emotions/ego? often interfere with my own.
The horse I spoke of was "Gabriel", our 3-legged one. He and I did have a special bond and he was one who did give me a vision of him running on all FOUR legs....He was so excited....running along side the car in Spirit, saying, "Look! Look!" I did have to tell him that it was time to move on....and he did.
He later came to me in a dream and showed me he was indeed in that glorious green valley that I've seen before in other dream visits. I've always felt it was an honor to be able to see it because I had been INVITED.
