MISSY (a warning to you all!!)

I decided to write this up so what happened to Missy doesn't happen to your horses.

We live next to a primary school and the young boys tend to always climb on the fences making them loose.
We had our ponies Marlea, Missy and Moo in that paddock.
One friday night we were all sitting down about to watch a movie, and there was flashing lights on our driveway, we ran to the window to see who it was and there was a police car coming up our drive way.
Mum and dad told me to stay here and they ran out to see what the police officer wanted. They were out there for about an hour and I was begining to get really scared.
They came back in, and dad told me that Missy and Moo got out and were on the road, but they were ok and they were both back in the paddock now.
The next morning dad came into me and told me that Missy had been hit by a car, and he didn't want to tell me last night because it would upset me too much.
The lady that hit Missy in her car was an elderly woman and had to go to hospital for minor injuries.
Moo saw the whole thing happen and I'm telling you know, she wouldn't eat or drink for a week. She was obviously devistated to loose her best friend.


Please, check your fences regulrly so what happened to little missy won't happen to your pony or horse.


RIP MISSY

I am so sorry for your loss. I've heard horror stories about horses getting hit. Dangerous for the car driver as well. The last one in my area was a horse vs semi, the driver was air lifted. I'm glad to hear your other two horses made it back home ok and that the woman driving survived as well. Thanks for sharing, its something we should all keep in mind.

Thankyou.
Yes, and the thing is, Missy was black and this was at night making it even harder to spot her.
There was 3 thoroughbreds get hit by a car a while ago and the driver was a P plater that died in the accident.

I used to volunteer at a non profit therapeutic riding center for years. A few years back there were some horrible people going around who would seriously just let horses out for entertainment I guess?? There were about 20 something horses there and the facility was right off a busy road. So these lovely people let all the horses out and of course they ended up on the road. 2 old horses, Honey & Brownie (who were inseparable) got hit and killed, it was absolutely devastating. Thank god it was only 2 and not more and that no one else was injured other than one made that slipped and cut her knee open. We had to padlock all the gates for a longtime after that which I'm itself is a terrible idea.

So glad you're other two wernt harmed! But so sorry you had to go through that :(

So sorry for your loss :(

Perhaps you could put a hot wire up and stick signs on your fence warning the kids that it's electric to make sure this doesn't happen again?
