So I managed to summon my spirit animal (A horse) in a field alone like I was supposed to. I walked to it and it looked at me and laid down almost as if it wanted me to do the same thing. I did so and it kept looking at me, but it then looks down at my feet (I remembered that the guide wanted you to be barefoot when outside so I removed my shoes and socks) I didn't know what it was going to do but then it started to lick my feet for a short time. I moved my feet back and I could hear a faint voice saying something to me, and I am not joking there was no one around me at the time I did this it. Can someone help me figure out what had happened? I've heard somewhere that this might be the animal trying to connect with you somehow but....I don't know.
It certainly sounds like you got in touch with your spirit animal :) !! Usually when a horse lays down, it's a sign of trust, so your spirit animal may be simply saying 'I'm here and I heard your call'.
As for licking of your feet...no idea what that means, but it is an interesting development :)
Thanks, I recently found that I have 2, the other is a some kind of large canine like creature. For some reason ever sense I saw it I see it out of the corner of my eye and sometimes even hear another voice when meditating.

It may possibly be a shadow representation. That is, it symbolizes (in the same way a spirit animal symbolizes aspects of yourself and guides help people find their potential) some negative aspects of yourself, challenges you need to confront or overcome about yourself, and the like.
It may eventually come to light, when you are ready to face aspects of yourself which you may not yet be ready to confront. In that way, a shadow animal (or aspect) is also a guide, helping you develop into a better person by exposing things you dislike about yourself.
