LOL, reading this reminds me of Stoeka. When she was around, at the old barn you could never keep her in a paddock she didn't want to be in. She was only an odd 14hh, but she could jump over all of the fences there, and if it was too high, she would just go under it.
She also knew exactly which way each and every gate opened. Like her stable door would open to the inside, so whenever I didn't latch the door properly she would pull the gate towards herself, reverse, then just walk out. :roll:
