If only horses could talk...the truth, astonishing though it might be to some, is that horses do talk, and gifted healer and animal communicator Julie Dicker has been conversing with them for years. She can discover, through making a direct connection with horses' hearts and minds, the answers to many questions that puzzle their owners - and, in some cases, their vets. Based on dozens of interviews with Julie Dicker's clients, veterinary colleagues and other horse professionals, and assessment of thousands of case notes, What Horses Say is a ground-breaking book. It provides anecdotal evidence of a high degree of equine consciousness, attributing horses with an ability to observe, reason, think and feel that is unquestionably far higher than is generally supposed. It also contains a unique, first-ever survey of 62 horses and ponies, asking them direct questions about their lives, their preferences and what they need most from us. Do they really enjoy being ridden? What do they feel about separation? Is love the most important ingredient in a horse's life? The answers are often astonishing.
