Arggg one of the most moronic moments for me was when I was saddleing up Boo.
He used to be grazed at my cousins. There was a post with couple rails to tie them up to, and running along one side was a single wire to keep them away from the surrounding trees. Boo was tied closest to the wire, I was on the opposite side and I put the saddle on, the girth was already attached, so I just pulled it up to me and did one buckle, noticed Banjo had gone tence, then he completly freaked , I got out of the way but my cousins horse who was tied next to him , nearly got caught in the cross fire.
I was stupid enough to have gotten the girth over the single wire and done it up. So the wire was effectively tied to Boo
He calmed down/froze after realising he was tied up and had gotten to the end of his lead rope( and ended up on the other side of my cousins poor confused horse), but only after ripping almost the whole wire from the fence, even the bits that hold the wire to the fence were good and bent/ broken :roll:
I very quickly undone the girth, which ended up with a hearty rip in it, but not all the way through.
Man I felt like such a dork. Lucky Boo forgave me tho
