Oh Boy Here's A Story...

So my horse Fresh Paint was out at a horse show in Las Colinas a couple weekends ago. Now the show ground is semi close to a major highway and a pretty major street. Well I go out the the show on a Thursday and go to open my horses stall door and I realize that there is rope tied around it. After pondering why this could be on here I go and ask my trainer why there's rope on my horse door. She says to me "oh yeah about that, I got a text as 3 a.m. this morning from the show guy that spends the night at the show to make sure nothing goes wrong that your horse had broken out and ran all the way to 635 and McAurther" (the major highway and road). Then she goes on to tell me that the cops had to come out and they tried to catch my horse and he hauls butt the opposite direction back toward the show ground and gallops around on the polo field until the cops and the show guy catch him! Needless to say my horse went on heavy lock down after that and had to have his stall door chaind shut. I am super glad that nothing happened to him because if something did I would be crushed.!!!
