You will NOT believe this one

Ok. So DH and I finished riding last night. It's getting dark--ok, 'cause we have the front barn light on--and I've gotta finish dinner. I ask DH to sit and watch HIS horse, Long Arm of the Law, aka "Sweet Cuppin' Cakes"--the big face in my Avatar, left, tied up to dry off, my mare, same, and to watch Buster (butt in the Avatar) who was confined to the training area (right over the fence from Cuppin' Cakes.) My two geldings are playing with each other's faces, like the BFF's that they are, as I go inside. I come out like 10 minutes later and Cuppin' Cakes is loose. DH tells me that Buster kept working on Cuppin' Cakes' halter until he got the halter loose. Then Buster walked away towards to gate, and Cuppin' Cakes is now 12 feet away from his tie-up spot, grazing.
Soooo...did Buster know what he was doing? ...did Cuppin' Cakes know what Buster was doing?...have they done this before, considering I turn them out sans halter?
ALL I know is that I have a QH (Buster Brown) who plays with
E V E R Y T H I N G,
and has now learned a new trick!!! UNbelieveable!!
Pity me.

I have had them also take halters off and untie their selves. My cousin's horse could let him self out of his stall then let his buddies out of their stall, but only the horses he liked did he let out.
