    Just very curious

    It took me a while to piece it completely together too.
    Basically: Unbeknown to OP - The gate some how got open on her horses' pasture and at least one horse got out.
    Later the neighbor calls that the pool is wrecked and thinks a horse had been in it (above ground pool). OP goes to investigate and finds horse in question is in her pasture (looking innocent), gate is open, and horse has scrapes on her legs. Pool is mangled.

    History of neighborhood dogs chasing horses in the pasture. No idea how gate got open.

    We finally had to put padlocks on our gates. Neighborhood kids must think its cute to open them up and let the horsey's free

    I haven't thought of that; you could be right. They do have two young girls. We have a lock on the front gate by the road, but the gate facing their house doesn't have one... but I'm certainly not going to blame them. The horses could have been rubbing their butts on the latch and opened it. I hate that gate! Whoever built that fence must not have been thinking when they put the latch on the inside! At least there is a chain that raps around the back.

    Yikes, I am so glad that Lilly did not break any bones, she is very lucky. I had a horse runned down by coyotes and when he jumped a ditch to get away, he shattered his right leg bone. We had to put him down. I will definetly pray for you guys! If you need any help, I have some family in business and they now all about insurance and stuff like this.

    It's nice to see a fellow Alabamian, lol! I'm from Montgomery.

    Thanks Nokota for offering to help, it has been settled. Thank you for your prayers. Wow, I can't believe your horse got chased by coyotes! We have a lot of coyotes in our woods, I thought they would be scared of horses!

    Depends on the group of coyotes. If the season has been bad and they are hungry enough, they will hunt bigger game.
