Talking to a pet in a dream
A husband and wife bought a horse which they named Sid. Their plan was to train the horse, and when it reached a certain age, they would resell it. Of course, it never occurred to them to wonder how Sid felt about all this.
About a year later, the husband had an unusual dream in which he found himself entering a crowded bar. Seeing an in occupied table, he went over and sat down. A man came over and introduced himself. “Hi,“ he said. “I am Sid, your horse.“
The dreamer thought this was the funniest thing he had ever seen. “My horse in a dream, looking like a man,“ he said. “This is really wild.”
The only thing that bothered him about the dream was that this man had a tooth missing, where as his horse did not.
The dreamer and his horse got to talking. Sid said, “You know, I love you and your wife. I’d like to stay with you. I’ve never had owners before who could Soul Travel [leave their body consciously] and meet with me in the dream state so we could talk things over.“
This is pretty far out, the dreamer thought.
“Sid,” he asked, “I notice you’ve been limping on one of your hind legs. Is there something wrong?”
“I’m having a problem with that foot,” said Sid. “It’s just a minor thing, but if you can get a farrier to trim my hoof, I could walk better.” And they continue talking.
When the man I woke and told his wife about the dream, they shared a good laugh over it. The part about the missing Tooth was really hilarious.
Later that morning as they walked to the stable, they saw a crowd around Sid’s stall. The couple rushed over, afraid that something dreadful had happened to their horse.
The owners saw a little bit of blood on the door of the store, but Sid seemed to be all right. The husband put a halter on the horse and led him outside. “If you plan to ride him, just don’t put a bit in his mouth,“ one of the grooms advised him. “Your horse somehow got his mouth caught on the door lock, and his tooth broke off.“
Husband and wife looked at each other. “The missing tooth in your dream,“ she said. Without another word, they leaned over to check the horses hind foot. Just as Sid had said in the dream, his hoof needed trimming.
The dream had been manipulated so that the man could communicate with the horse in a way he could accept.
