    Horsey Houdini

    Our Haflinger mare has a last name now. She's Honey Houdini. Yesterday she decided that she did not want to spend the day in the stall so she busted out and wandered around the stable looking in all the stalls for any left over grain and hay. She needs bigger bars on her door! Notice the broken gate. We had to put that up because she was propping her forelegs on the door and once got hurt from it.

    Honey is wearing a fly mask. She has severe allergies to the gnats and her eyes can swell shut. For that reason her pasture mate, Goldie, and she spend the day in the stalls and are turned out at night. With the fly mask and the nighttime turn out she is doing much better. She may have been bored or hungry. She is an eating machine and isn't happy with summer rations. I think she went looking for food in the other stalls that were vacated for the day. Goldie was in the stall next door so I don't think she was lonely. But since I am not a horsey psychologist I don't know. At least she didn't get into the feed room!


    By the way, Her forelock is growing in so maybe she will have enough hair to keep the flies off next year. The forelock was just a "cotton ball" between her ears when we got her.

    That is hilarious! I didnt even notice the broken fence until you posted it in the thread. Those ponies are scary smart.

    Do horses mark their territory? I found out that when Honey busted out she went into other horses stalls and pooped and peed in them. Maybe she wasn't looking for food but just wanted to be queen!
