First you think, the horse will be fine grazing in our field. Suddenly you realize there is no water out for the horse and it could become dehydrated. Then you realize your property is not fenced and if the horse get's thirsty enough it could head for the lake. You also realize it could head for the well-traveled road in front of your house and be hit by a car resulting in a dead horse or a dead driver.
Perplexed you call another neighbor who brings the horse water. The visiting horse, now rejuvenated decides to begin foraging near your barn and finds it can flip the lid off your chicken feed and help itself. We could place a large concrete block on top of the feed but we are able to lift anything. We both managed to hobble out to the barn. I got on the tractor and Ron guided me to park it in front of the chicken feed so the horse had to stop feasting. Meanwhile Slim held the horse at bay.
Our helpful neighbor finally got word to the owner's granddaughter and she came to get the horse after dark last night. She was a tiny little thing having to retrieve this Goliath by herself.
It turns out that another neighbor's pack of dogs have been terrorizing the horses and caused this horse to jump the fence in an effort to escape.
P.S. There is a day or two left to get in on 155 Dream Lane's Holiday Header giveaway. See the link on my sidebar if you want to be entered in the drawing.
