Most of you are familiar with how we lost DJ back in October 2010. It's made us a bit sensitive about our horses.
Yesterday morning, we looked out to see Rain standing up next to a couple of trees in the lot. Nothing unusual there. Looked out an hour later, and she was standing in the exact same spot. Now, that's unusual.
Went out there, fearing that she was ill or something serious. She was tied to the tree by her tail!!!!!
My first thought was just that she had gotten it tangled, but there is no way she can tie a dang square knot! Didn't take but a couple of minutes to untie the knot and she was free. She slowly sauntered off like nothing happened. We kept a close eye on her all day yesterday and today. She's fine. I am most definitely NOT fine.
It was probably kids. Down the road a bit from us someone opened a gate into a pasture, and about a dozen bulls got out and wandered down the road. You can see another spot where someone got stuck in the mud, and there are a LOT of beer boxes in that same spot. Probably kids out on a pranking spree. They'd better hope I never find out who it was...they won't be able to sit down for a week!
