    At my barn that I board at we have three minis and one of them knows how to crawl(literally) under the fencce and open the gate so all of the horses can get out! Thankfully most of the horses know where there food is at and they stay in their pasture.
    That is cute and frustrating at the same time....

    We've had several escapees, my horse is quite proficient at gate opening, so if someone forgets to chain the gate shut, she opens them the minute no-one is watching.

    We keep a bucket of treats handy, if anyone gets out just grab the bucket and calmly approach. As long as you stay calm, no yelling or running and have yummy treats or grain, they are easy to re-catch usually.

    Now when all the chickens at the barn got out.... UGH. Trying to catch chickens while my horse chased after them trying to make "friends" was not fun.

    Haha... we don't have chickens but we own two at my Aunt and Uncles house and they have another 11.... when they get out, they get eaten by their dog so everyone is beyond careful not to let them out :)

    Ours have gotten out twice.... Both times when I wasn't there. From what i've heard, the most memorable what when they escaped during the middle of the night and had to be rounded up with four-wheelers. My first horse had his fence break twice(fallen trees) and both times he was easily found happily munching in the neighbor's garden.

    Lol! That is so funny. Down here we have small crane-like birds called Egrets, and they pick bugs off of livestocks and stuff. One day, I look out my window just in time to see a bird land on the rump of my 1 year old horse. His head shot up from grazing and he got sort of spooked, but was confused at the same time so he took off trotting and the bird just bounced along and then took off! It was hilarious! Indy had to be thinking What the...
