    Bobo's back home

    I fed this morning at my normal time of 7:00AM and everything was fine. I was settling in to watch the news and have my second cup of coffee when the door bell rang.

    There is a development bordering the back of my farm and standing at the door was a neighbor that I didn't really know. "We have a brown horse that I think belongs to you in our back yard"

    "OH no! Are there any others"

    "No, just the brown one. The white one and the grey one are still in your pasture. My father is keeping him busy so he's OK"

    "Did he cause any damage"

    "Nah, my dad is giving him some corn that we feed the deer with and is following my father around the yard looking for more"

    Alrighty then ... over to the barn to grab a halter and lead line then through the pasture to my neighbor's back yard. The other two were watching me as I went over the fence and Bobo was just standing there munching on some corn.

    My neighbor's father had Bobo in the yard and was just petting him and feeding him deer corn. Bobo was clearly enjoying the visit!

    I put the halter on the big guy, fixed the lead line like a rein, got him in a position by a large log and got on him bareback. I made my way through my neighbor's yard and off to the street. Wished everyone a Merry Christmas and was off - at least for a few yards.

    With the dogs barking, the Christmas decorations flapping in the breeze, and the newness to everything, he got a little ansy. I though better of riding him that way considering the pavement and ended up walking him the mile around the development and back to the farm.

    It took a few hours to find and fix the spot that a tree had taked down a section of fence but all's well now.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL - Hope your horses stay put today!

    Awww very cute story. You are very fortunate to have such nice neighbors. I lived out of country for years and it was on a regular basis we would end up getting random horses show up on our front step. We made it a regular habit to put them in our back pasture, let the local bylaw know and wait until the owners showed up to bring back where they belonged

    Sounds like your guy has a sense of adventure

    I'm glad Bobo was agreeable with you and was willing to head back towards home. I'm really glad you took into consideration the pavement... that would have been a less than ideal landing spot!!!

    LOL... Yea, I can see how landing on pavement would be a one shot lesson. No need to lather, rinse and repeat!!!
