Hi everyone, I know this forum isn't generally for people who need help with their animals, but we've had a bit of a situation today and we are hoping someone can connect with Smartie and at least let us know he's okay. I will tell the story below..

Smartie is a horse who is boarded at the same barn as my horse, his owner is a little bit mentally unstable and we have had quite a few issues with her; though nothing large. Last night she e-mailed our barn owner telling her that in the morning (today) she was having the vet out to come euthanize Smartie.

Our barn owner was not on the property when it happened, but when she did arrive she saw no signs of where this would have taken place - no truck tracks on the property and no marks where there appears to have been a body removed/drag marks.

We are thinking/hoping that she moved him off the property and used that as an excuse to leave the barn without having to pay next month's board.

I would really appreciate if anyone could contact Smartie and at the very least give me some peace of mind that he is either okay, or that his spirit is okay.

Here is a photo, unfortunately the only one I have of him (he's the horse on the far left):


Thank you to everyone in advance. We are all very upset about this.  :(

I've been meaning to do this as soon as I saw it, I will have it done tonight. Do you know anything more about his situation?

Contacted him, finally!

Getting an image of a woman, curly red hair and glasses.

He is agitated, I feel walls closing in on him. I ask him if he is in a closed space, he says yes. Flimsy, metal walls, dirty straw underfoot and a thing of hay to eat. Not much light.

He says he is in his physical body, but he wants to go home; he told me this many times. He says he wants to go outside.

Says there is another horse nearby, a gray dappled mare? I'm getting the sense that it's a mare.

I tell him to relax, I formally introduce myself. He seemed very frazzled. Told me his name was Smartie after I introduced myself. Said people call him "Smarts" but said it wasn't true because he was stupid. Has anyone called him stupid?

He wants to go home, he told me that again.

Any of this make sense to you?

Hard to say, we haven't heard anything from his mom.  :(

Thank you so much for contacting him though!

Hi KLou, I don't know if you have any new info but here's what I got.  I got the impression that Smartie may be somewhere in Colorado.  I feel that he has room to move and fields to graze in so hopefully his situation is okay improved even though I got the sense he isn't all that happy.  I got an image of a scar towards his back right hip and I think it came from another horse.  He says the horses around him are "grouchy" but overall he doesn't mind where he is at too much.  He understands his person is a little off but feels some connection to her regardless.  I got the image of a short, heavyset woman.  I saw his ears flicking away flies so not sure if he is still somewhere where the flies are out.

Hi Klou,
Want you to know I'm very new at this.  Tuned in to Smartie tonight & this is what I got:

I saw him in a barn somewhere, with a covering overhead, like a room/barn with a wood roof, near a hill.  I heard "perfectly happy", but also "I want out" & "I'd like to run".  I got a sense of calm and got the expression "go with the flow".  I felt some pressure at the hip joints.  Feel he doesn't understand his owner.

I wish there was more for you but that's all I got.  I really hope you know more by now & that it all turns out for the best.  Not knowing is so hard!  Is there an update?
