I am 24 and just got out of collage to be a professional horse trainer. I have a barn with my boyfriend Collin, my sister Amber who is 30, her husband Jesse, and their 2-year-old daughter Carmella. We have four of my horses. Lightning, Chief, Breeze, and Indy. All four horses get along. Now, my barn has a bit of a history. The father, and son were hung, the mother was shot, and the 13-year-old daughter was stabbed in early 1900's. That is what the owner told us before we bought it, we thought he was kidding. But lately in the barn I feel a cold hand on my shoulder, my horses are always getting spooked in there own stalls, and I feel like eyes are watching me.
I was always the one to believe in ghosts, and I do believe the old family's ghost is still here.
Just today when I was riding my best horse Lightning who is the smartest and safest, started rearing, kicking at the ground and backing up like something was attacking her, I got off and tried calming her down but nothing worked, she broke away from me and ran back to the pastures (jumping the fence) and stayed in there with the other 3 horses scared to death. All my four horses were neighing. After that, I took Lightning back in to brush her and let her cool down, but she was neighing and wouldn't stop pawing at the ground. Then when I was walking to put the saddle back I got shoved to the ground, I didn't trip because I felt the hand push me... I felt a cold hand push me. I turned around-no one.
Lately my sister Amber has been seeing shadows ONLY in the barn and around the pastures, black shadows that follow us. Like eyes watching us. I even get the hair on the back of my neck standing up. Jesse and Collin haven't been experiencing anything... Just me and Amber... And the horses.
Is it possible that the horses are seeing these ghosts and we are the ones getting hurt? These ghosts are physically hurting us.
Just today I found a cut on my horse Breeze, and honest to god it looks like the shape of a hand. Like I said the 4 horses get along so none of them could make a cut or bite mark that big, and the wired fences couldn't do that. I'm worried, and I don't want any of my horses or my family getting hurt any worse.
I'd feel terrible making this ghost family leave after their tragic murder.
If anyone is reading this... Please comment and give me help!
Or email me at
PS: I try sitting down in the barn and talking to the family. I say "good morning", "Goodnight", and "beautiful day today?" I talk to them just like a normal conversation. I want to help these ghosts/spirits, not cause problems.
