Silly horses. My friend ties her percheron gelding into his stall at night double knots the door, latches, and clips it and by morning he's standing in the aisle way. She has no idea how he does it. Some are just good escape artists!
Your boy is gorgeous by the way.

Jake just pushes down the top rail and steps over the bottom 2.

I have to say...when I first saw him this morning he was grazing by the tall tree to the right of the pond. He literally glowed in the morning light. Hence I grabbed my phone to take a pic. But he saw me, knew he was busted and went running for the barn.

He is a character!
Absolutely hilarious. Horses are truly amazing creatures. It was also great to see you have a fenced pool. You never see this which always leads to serious accidents.

It's actually a law here in NJ to have a fence around an inground pool. It used to be a white picket fence but we replaced it with willow branches that are wired together (very sturdy) and on the left there is actually a thatched tiki hut with hammocks underneath. Perfect place to unwind after a hot sweaty day looking after the ponies.

Funny boy! My guy would occasionally get out by popping a PVC rail and would wake us up, rubbing his lips and teeth on the bedroom screen, like he was saying "Hey, sleepy head, get out here and feed me. I'm starvin!"

Gorgous property you have!
