The barn i'm moving Mayder too some of the fencing is *maybe* up to his chest and i did slightly worry about it. But they've had draft crosses and warmbloods on the property and never have gotten out. Also the only part of the fencing thats lower is to their backyard technically and all the driveways have gates that are closed at all times unless somebody is wanting out or in. Of course right near the low partsis the barn and all they hay. so he'd prolly head for that first more then anything.

Which a person who used to board would go there really late at night and she left the gate open and Mayder did actually get out. the BO threw a huge fit and didn't tell me that he got out and blamed me for "horses" getting out when I was not at fault for it. He was a drama queen and said they got to the rode... they went up to the hay feild and were just chilling eating hay.

You can get a halter plate ingraved with whatever info you need. But, you may need to get a halter with a leather poll strap unless yours is already leather. There are plastic "necklaces" one can get with a tag for info. PMU ranches often used them.

I do worry sometimes.
My horse 'mysteriously' got out once, I know all the gaits were closed & all the fencing was up. I doubt he could have jumped..

I don't really worry. If my horse somehow escaped her pasture, she'd have to get through another fence to get off the property. Once she mastered that fence, she'd have to go through another one to get to the road. In between each of these fence is very lush, tempting grass and I'm almost positive that she would stop for that, rather than trying to go over, under or through a fence.

I once had a crazy woman (Lots of background story, don't ask) come and let all our dogs out of their kennels and open up all our stall doors and pastures while we were sleeping, letting ALLL the animals out. Luckily the horses stayed close. A couple of the dogs came to the doorsteps and soe others went cow chasing....Luckily the bull wasn't out and the neighbors were very forgiving....

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

my horses are escape artists!!! it doesn't matter if you have wood or electirc fencing they will get out. but the fartherest they go is to the neighbors. they are so used to they walk them back very friendly near me... kinda
someone mentioned it but i think its the best option... make sure as many ppl near you know what your horse loooks like. one of my friends had a mare and someone took her in the middle of the night... she found her a month later... her neighbor spotted the mare in a muddy field in an abandoned property very thin... so lots of eyes help the most

Yes I do 8D That's why when I go out of town, Indie wears a halter that has my phone number written in bulky numbers along the side.
It's good to be in touch with your neighbors though, pretty sure everyone here knows who that "super friendly little pony horse" belongs too.
