Yes, he has gotten out at night, but that was before she came into heat, he got out and roamed the neighborhood. No idea how they caught him. Ok, I'm calling ac today, and a vet just to ask about the price of Lute. Then, I'm going to just quit worrying about it. Not sure about that law, it was my understanding that it was the responsibility of the owner of the loose livestock to keep them in, and not sure if anything would keep this guy out.
Just wanted to give an update. The lady called a rescue to get the horse, so that problem is solved, and my daughter got her own horse 3 days ago. She is a flea bitten grey, 15 yrs., 15 hands gentle, and rides like a dream. I hope to go see her in a very soon.
The mare left, that horse did not belong to my daughter, but to her neighbor. My daughter's fences are much better, but she needs to call and find out what she can do to keep her mare from coming into heat. That stallion is really going to hurt someone if he keeps escaping, and there are kids all up and down on that road.
I'm afraid even the best fence in the world can be torn down by a stallion with a mission. You need to call the law on the stallion coming morning. It's just going to happen again. The only way you she won't be able to come into heat is if both ovaries are removed which is a very EXPENSIVE surgery I will add. Even a vet placing a marble in her only prolongs a heat cycle for so long. Posted via Mobile Device
Wild ponies .. you don't ever leave a horse in a trailer unattended. That is a recipe for trouble.
CGLinda. That would be very kind of you to get the shot for the mare.
Perhaps the mare owner could put up a hot wire ? Most counties and cities have ordinances that state what type of fence size of pens .. example 5 rail 6 -8 ft tall for a stallion.
Check the town ordinance laws, sometimes the laws is under 'code commissions'
