I was just thinking a few months ago, we had a call from the police station asking us if our horses were out. They weren't. Apparently there was a horse loose a mile down from us, and on either side of that road are two highways.
There were two older horses, grazing peacefully in some guys yard (who had phoned the station). We went out looking for them, the guy was really nice... Police tried and tried and tried to find the owners, but couldn't. We were loading them into our trailer (OK'd by the popo, since they didn't know wth to do LOL) when the owners came.
The owners were cool with it once they figured out we weren't trying to steal their 20 something pasture ornaments, but now we're the first ones the officials call if horses are out and they can't find owners. They do keep a list of horse owners in the area as they find them... Am I the only one this happens to?
