they scared the heck out of me!

ok so as some of you know I have two belgian stud colts about 8 months old, well my neighbor took his tractor to the back of our land and when he came up he decided to push some fallen tree branches into a pile. Well the noise scared the colts so bad they ran to the fence. The bigger one bowen scaled it, but the smaller one orion didn't, he wasnt tall enough so his front legs hit the top of the fence and he fliped over the fence, landed and got right up, he then continued to trot along with bowen. I have been watching him since then as he is moving perfectly fine, but boy did it scare the heck out of me. That fence was about 4 1/2 feet high. I didnt think they would have been able to come close to scaling it. Has anything like this ever happend to any of you? Thank God they are both fine, although i will be keeping an eye on orion for the next few days.

I didn't see it happen, but when I moved my mare to where she is now, apparently something scared her and she tried to jump out of her pasture. Her pasture has pipe fencing, sort of like this:

She didn't make it, and she ended up getting stuck. My boss, who lives on the ranch, found her stuck halfway over the fence and ended up getting her down somehow. He didn't call me until afterwards, so I didn't get a chance to go out and see how they got her down or anything, but it was still scary when I found out about it.

I haven't seen a flip over a fence, but falling on their side in a full blown gallop! Yup, scarey stuff. Glad they are both OK.

You can breath now!

Wow! Glad they are okay!

The first day a 19 year old mare got turned out at my barn, she apparently hadn't been turned out in 4 years. She got scared of the other mares and jumped a 5 foot gate in the mud! The poor thing wouldn't go out for 3 months
