Hi all. I just brought my new horse home yesterday and I checked on him about 8:30 pm last night to make sure he was getting on well in his new home and with the other horse he shares a pasture with. He seemed content and non-stressed. This morning, I went out to bring him in to feed and he was GONE! Fortunately, his previous owner (and his previous home) is just down the road and sure enough that is where he went. So, where do I go from here? How can I keep this from happening again? I walked the fence line and there is no damage so he had to have jumped. Apparently this has been an issue with him before as his previous owner shared a humorous story with me about him jumping the fence and hauling butt down the road when they first brought him to their home.
