Flooded Stable Ahhh!!!

My TB basically tore his auto waterer off the wall last night!! The water apparently ran all night and this morning him and his next door neighbor are standing in 2 feet of water!! AHHHHH!!!!!

SO today I have to go figure it all out, at least we have a dirt floor sheesh.

Anything like this ever happen to you?

It was a little funny :) Especially his face when I rescued him, he sure looked sheepish hehe.

It took 5 hours to get all the nasty wet bedding out of there, I am beat! I told him next time it happens he has to live outside for the next 20 years. Hehe.

Oh, yes. Happened more than once. I boarded horses for years. Every once in awhile we'd get a wisenheimer in there who would break the automatic waterers :)

Horses, gotta luv 'em!
