Color me skeptical on this one…I’m not so keen on “miracles”.
Officials executed a difficult horse rescue on Tuesday, lifting an 800-pound Norwegian fjord out of a deep Redmond ravine without any injuries.
But the most incredible part, says the stable’s owner, is how caretakers found the horse — with the help of a telepathic animal communicator.
Owner Barbara Linstedt said caretakers searched for her for hours before getting connected to acclaimed horse communicator Joan Ranquet on Monday night.
Ranquet apparently communicated via telepathy with Gemma and determined she was in a tight space near shrubbery and could hear road noise and water, Linstedt said.
Linstedt knew that meant the shelf in the ravine.
“It’s amazing,” Linstedt said. “It’s an absolute miracle that we found her and got her out.”

So, the horse has gotten out before. The owner knew of the area in which she was trapped so had she done that before? Horses often escape to their favorite place (where there are good eats) so I can see many clues that could have led them to her location. The animal communicator didn’t give anything very specific and appears to have just triggered the thought of this location with the owner and there she was. I don’t call this a miracle. I call it convenient. But very glad the horse is OK.
