    Terrifying experience

    I went out to feed the horses last night around 8, so it was dark already. We used to use the barn for our dog run WAY back before horses so the fence around it is incredible. It's 6ft high with 8"thick round posts cemented 2ft into the ground and 2x4's across the top and the bottom (to prevent escape as we have HUGE dogs). Anyhow, the neighbors mare came running pell nell for the barn, missed the opening and SMASHED the fence. She smashed it flat. Splintered all the posts. Truly amazing what she did to the fence. Scared the absolute bejeezus out of all of us. The horses took off running away from the barn and I stood rooted to the ground wondering how badly she must be injured from that. After awhile they came meandering back to the barn to eat and I got to check them all over. She's not limping and hasn't a scratch on her. I'll check her again today for heat but she's amazingly unscathed. The fence, is not.

    I'll have to take pictures. She's a tiny little 13hh mare but she obviously packs a punch!

    Yeah, never ceases to amaze me how my guy could stumble through a mine field blindfolded and come out without a mark, yet if I have ONE partially bent nail out on the wood fence somewhere in the back 40 he finds it and tears the crap out of his side.... :p

    Furbabymum, I know exactly what you mean. I have one of those ponies. If I remember he height correctly she's just over 12hh. One day we were trying to gather the herd into "the quad" a big square pen attached to my stables that we use to temporarily confine them for stuff like fly spray, etc. This day thay were being very difficult and didn't want to come in at all. So they started running faster towards the big camp gate, a std farm gate and about as high as she is. What does madam do, she tries to jump the fence next to the gate. Her front end made it, but her hind leg hooked on the fence post, tearing a nice big hole in the fleshy part just above the hock.
