A horse was rescued from a 70ft ravine, after an animal communicator ‘found’ her by looking at a photo.
Gemma, a Fjord horse, had been missing for more than a day when her distraught owner got in touch with Joan Ranquet, a pet phsyic.
After looking at a picture of Gemma, Joan claims she was able to telepathically connect with the four-year-old, who had a history of escaping. Joan said that she sensed that the horse was in a small enclosed place, where there was a sound of rushing water.
"I just got some pictures and words and feelings – I got a sense of where she was," Joan told Kiro TV. "It's the process of telepathy, which is something that we all do. But I got good at it."
"I didn't hear a lot of words. It was more just a sense of those pictures and the sounds."
The manager of Saddle Rock Stables in Washington, USA, where Gemma was kept, said she immediately knew where to look and led rescue workers to a steep ravine, where the horse was found stuck on a narrow ledge.
Her owner, Nikki Ellen, hiked down and spent night with Gemma after rescue workers decided it was safer to wait till the following morning to get her out.
It then took 65 rescue workers from eight organisations, led by the Washington State Animal Response Team, around 12 hours to haul the 800-pound horse to safety, using a harness they made out of fire hoses.
Incredibly, 30 hours after falling down the ravine, Gemma was back on safe ground, and relatively unscathed from the ordeal.
"I have no idea how she survived, let alone didn't break a couple legs," said Nikki.
