* BOB in ''TwinPeaks'' can see what goes on in the woods through the eyes of owls, although it may be that he can transform into them. It's ambiguous.

->''In groups big enough for me to get full coverage of the area, my swarms took turns roving over my surroundings. They couldn’t pass through closed doors, but they gave me a sense of my surroundings that my eyes couldn’t. The results were almost the inverse of what I might expect from my eyesight. There was no grasp of color, beyond what I could guess from the various clues I got from my other senses, but I had a keen sense of textures. Where my eyes would have been capable of focusing on one thing at a time, my swarm-sense gave me the ability to pull together complete mental pictures from a thousand different points of focus. I could ignore line of sight, sensing around objects, and even though my bugs’ senses translated poorly, the sum total of their awareness gave me a sense of the little things, in addition to the big picture. I could sense where the air currents were traveling and the force with which they moved, the thickness of the dust in one area versus another, and where temperatures were higher, if even by a fraction.''

* In ''The Bad Place'' by DeanKoontz, [[CreepyTwins creepy twin sisters]] Violet and Verbina have this ability. They share a constant mind link with each other and the dozens of cats occupying their home. Craving wild and evocative sensation, they often drift outward to possess the bodies of hunting animals and their prey to feel both the thrill of the hunt and the pain of death. They cannot do this to humans however.

* Herald Eldan in the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' books has animal telepathy as one of his abilities, which gives him a touch of this as well. Many Heralds with strong "sight" Gifts can do this with their [[CoolHorse Companions]] -- though these are closer to guardian spirits than the horses they resemble.

* ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'':
**
Herald Eldan Eldan, seen most prominently in ''By the ''Literature/HeraldsOfValdemar'' books Sword'', has animal telepathy as one of his abilities, which gives him a touch of this as well. Many Heralds with strong "sight" Gifts can do this with their [[CoolHorse [[SeeingThroughAnothersEyes See Through Their Companions' Eyes]], but [[BondCreatures Companions]] -- though these are closer not horses, despite being [[SapientSteed horse-shaped]].
** Despite having no other form of Animal Mindspeech, Amily develops this ability between ''Bastion'' and ''Closer
to guardian spirits Home'' and develops it over the course of the latter book. It proves far more useful than it seems at first glance when she becomes the horses they resemble.[[spoiler:King's Own Herald]]. Having familiarity with the animal in question improves her range and stamina, but she can develop this familiarity by way of another animal. To spy upon one half of a [[FeudingFamilies simmering feud]], Amily gifts a pet to the lord's daughter and "introduces herself" to the rest of the house animals by looking through the little dog.
