The Great Escape

I was checking my e-mail and DH yells "Amanda the horses are out!". Of course, I didn't believe him. He likes to say stuff to get a reaction out of me. So I did a "That's nice dear" and went back to what I was doing. He hollered "I'm serious the horses are out of the pasture". So I get up thinking he was joking. Sure enough the horses are over in the neighbors yard. But it's just Alice and Annalie. Joe starts running toward them and I'm like NO NO Don't run! Go around the front of Annalie so she won't take off near the road. Once she gets across the street and gets into the neighbor's fields we'll play heck getting her back. I wasn't even thinking about where Arabella was.

So I run in the barn and grab a bucket of grain and her halter and open the big doors. I shake the bucket and Alice comes right to me. But Annalie was infatuated with the grass. So Joe took Alice back and I slowly make my way to Annalie who realizes I have grain and grab her by her mane and put her halter on. After putting her back in her stall I finally thought "Where the heck is Arabella?". Joe starts screaming at me to come here. So I go out and Arabella is tangled in the fence. She's just standing there like "get me out please". I'm flipping out thinking she surely hurt herself, but don't see any blood. So Joe has to get the wire cutters and cut her out of the fence. She stood there the whole time, perfectly still unless we asked her to move. I don't know how it happened but the fence was attached to the side of the barn. One of the horses took the fence down by pulling two boards off the barn, took out a t-post and pulled the fence away from three other t-posts. NOBODY WAS HURT! I can't believe how lucky we were. The fence is the semi-cheap field fence. She got two hooves through it. I think Annalie took the fence down trying to reach for leaves and Arabella got tangled in it trying to follow Annalie.

My husband spent two hours putting up a double secure fence, with cemented wood posts, wood boards and fencing on top where they took the fence down so it doesn't happen again. Tomorrow I'm going to check the fence from top to bottom. I can't believe that happened!
