I would be thankful about the fact your horse made it out alive more so than the cost of repairing the pool. Obviousyl no one was around when it happened so she could have easily exhausted herself and drowned trying to get out.

I know, that is what scares me, but God had his and in it and got her out with only a few scrapes and bruises. I am very very thankful that she didn't break any bones or worse!

Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone for your help! Lilly is perfectly fine now and our insurance paid for the damage. Our neighbors just got their new pool finished last week and it looks great! I don't like to make assumptions because I know I could be wrong, but I believe that the other neighbor's dog chased her in. She has been running and chasing the horses for a while now and I have seen her lounge at my donkey's neck once which scares me. Also, we have to pregnant mares in the pasture and the thought of the dog chasing them or the foals and tripping them up scares me too. My dad called and talked to the owner about it so hopefully they will try putting up an underground fence for the dog.

Glad everything was resolved. Your insurance ended up paying for it? I'm glad we added our horses to our policy recently No one has a pool in our area. I think the closest one is 8 miles away and that's the city pool

Glad everything worked out ok. It's good that she made it out alive...
Is the neighbour going to keep his dogs away??

Oh! That sounds horrible! I'm glad your horse was OK. And that your neighbours are such an understanding bunch!

Question - why was your horse in the situation to fall in a pool?

I haven't seen the dog chase the horses since my dad talked to the owner. Lilly was not placed in any way in a position where she could get hurt. It was a rare accident and no one knows how it happened. The pool is close to the pasture and some how she got out. I have no idea how but the gate was open and she was in the pasture eating grass when we went out there. I love my horses and I would never put them in a dangerous situation.

does your horse roam free?
How did she access your neighbor yard?
How far can she go?
Just very curious
