a shocking freak out/new horse
ok, a few weeks ago I traded for a new TWH.. he was undernourished for whatever reason. Anyway, for two weeks he has had the feed thrown to him and he is really filling out. I have been pleased with his attitude, he is just a really nice calm horse and seems willing.. long story short. He has been stalled during the day and let out to graze in the evening all night and put up during the day. Well Friday night my boarder went to put him out.. alot later than usual when he was cut lose in the field he just took off at a dead run and ran through a fence.. then freaked even more and ran through three more fences.. when they finally caught him they said as soon as they had a lead on him he was calm as a puppy again.. fortunately he has some minor cuts and scrapes and there doesnt seem to be any major damage.. the boarder is still in shock, said if he hadnt seen it he would have never believed it.. thankful he is not hurt bad and hope it was just a fluke.. oh well had to tell someone..
