Molly jumped the fence despite her slab fracture....

Despite Molly's slab fracture, which deems her unjumpable, twice now she has jumped the pasture fence. At Jenni's, before she was told about her injury, she jumped her and Molly's knees collapsed, falling over the jump.

She's always had a strong disliking to being the first or the last out to the grass pastures, she throws a fit and gallops the fenceline until I can get her in the company of other horses. Makes for some great pictures . Twice now in the past month, however, I've been bringing another horse out and all the sudden I'll see her barreling towards us, rushing back into the barn. The only logic to it is that she jumped the fence! Gate was securely latched and the split rail is in perfect condition, only both times the top rail had been knocked down and was resting on the middle rail. This is a good 4 1/2, 5 feet....despite the fact that she supposedly collapses over jumps, she managed to jump both! She's such a silly girl. Here's a pic of her compared to the fence, during one of her fits about being the last in.
