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.!!!
I can see were everyone is coming from, being shocked about the fact that something could have happend on that road. But don't you think its quite funny, the fact that all these police men and other people were chasing your one horse while you were sound asleep! Hahaha, sorry, but I found that bit hilarious!
Sorry but this is funny..Glad everything went ok but I've been in several similar situations..I live right by a busy highway and both my horses got out and all the nieghbors was calling me on the next road over..I had to ride my horse down this road with semi's coming and all LEADING a crazy paint gelding I had...My mare was only 3 and had never been on the road but I had to ride her because there was no other way, lucky she knew we were going home and was pretty nice, the gelding was a different story
Oh man! I would never have wanted to leave my horses alone after that. That's scary. Glad he is ok though :) he was probably having the time of his life...all those pretty cops lights flashing around him ;)
