    Just found out theyre placing blame on my friend for not "keeping her livestock penned up" but she can't figure out how they broke out...
    Yeah waresbears pretty sure that persons going to be needing lotsa tlc for the front of their car. Its gotta be hard to explain the chunks of horsehair, flesh, and blood that are probably on their bumper....

    About 35 years ago someone cut our fence to go dirtbiking on our property, horse got out, my sister's horse was killed on the road. Our homeowners insurance bought the person that hit our horse a new car, we were lucky she did't sue us for anything else. In the state of Missouri unless it is open range the horseowner is libable for the damage their loose horse causes.

    the blame,charges & fines etc goes to the horse & property owner,that is why you need liability insurance
    The person may have been impaired driving,hence a reason for not wanting to stick around or report the damage to vehicle,then he's in some doodoo not because he hit a horse....

    Maybe the person that hit the horse was Talking or Texting on the phone and Not Paying Attendion to driving.
    This is the Major cause of accidents today, Put the phone down & drive.........
    To bad the horse had to get hit, but it is also the owners fault for not checking the fence and keeping it in good repair, so the animals couldn't get out.
    Where I live the owner of the animal would be liable for damages...

    Oh my goodness pls tell your friend I am sorry for her loss. That is horrible

    Oh my. This just breaks my heart ...I can't stand hearing things like this, but it's so sad because it does happen. I remember when I was about 7 my dad and I were driving down a sort of back road, it was still a road that had cars enough though. Anyway, we see two horses galloping alongside the road! My dad pulled the car over and caught them, the owner then shows up and thanks him.

    I would be just a wreck if one of my girls ever got out ...

    Hillside she still doesnt no how they got out. She went and walked the line that morning and didnt find any holes and the gate was closed. But they do have a really bad ptoblem with dirt bikers cutting the fence and leaving it down and then rewiring it when they leave...they think yhat may be the case.

    That is gut wrenching to me. People are so heartless these days.

    Unfortunately, here the driver would be able to sue and would win. This is why the old horsemen always say to have 2 fences between your horses and the road and if you look at really well designed horse property, it will have a perimeter fence and then pastures or paddocks fenced for the horses.

    I'm sorry for your friend. It sucks that someone would go and leave an animal in agony.
