Thats going to be a great story to tell in 5 years

About a hour or two Ago we went to move our mare and stallion into the bottem padock (Our mare is pregnate so our stallion is fine being in the padock with her) when we but them down there our stallion started trying to mate her,Buffy our mare wasnt going to have any of that so she started to kick him Buffy also has a bad leg form a old eventing injery so it was hard for her to kick him anyway there were bolting around and went throught the fence.So here we are chasing this pregnate mare and stallion down the street and up the bush while Joke (stallion) is trying to mate buffy Out of half a town ONE person had the decency to help us and thankyou so much to that person.Luckly they finley stoped after exhaustion and there ok joker is a bit mangle and buffy sore but other than that there fine.
It got me thinking what is some of your worse horse escaping storys
So start shareing :)

Not judging at all, just asking.

Shouldn't stallions have very good fencing? Preventing this and other accidents from occurring?

^^ Nope. My gelding was created when an Appy stallion broke down one fence and mated thru another. Such determination should be rewarded with something!

OK...maybe the reward should be something other than another horse...

Horse escape story more than 10 years ago (I was at college out of state at the time). My mom fenced an additional ten acres below her pasture. Although she didn't actually put up the wire, just all the posts. Her thinking was that the horses would see the posts and not continue on. Or so she says... But the entire herd (minus the mare my youngest sister was riding halter/lead and bareback) charged straight down the hill and past the fence posts LOL! She and my younger sisters got the fun of chasing the herd cross country for a few miles, caught them safely and brought them home. I think my mom learned a valuable lesson that day, and now has a really nice fence for her pasture where she lives now. And a well separated pasture getting completed for her first stallion (who is wowing his trainers at the current time for the past week, they think that he could excel in reining).

Went to feed my friend's horses tonight and found they ripped a 14ft gate off it's hinges and were partying it up in the barn! Thankfully I closed off the barn this morning after I fed and turned-out so they were stuck in the barn and not able to run off down the road!

You can't prevent ALL accidents from happening. She has great fencing.... so the horses ripped down the gate instead of the fence!

The party in the barn reminded of an incident that happened with my own mare...

She was just two years old, being boarded in a paddock attached to the side of an old barn. She had managed to undo the lock on her paddock, go into the barn and create chaos. The BO came out to find that his 4 year old QH stud was out of his stall, teasing mares in the pasture. He also discovered my curious little filly was standing IN the stud's stall inside the barn. The latch for unlocking the stall was completely out of reach for a horse inside the stall, so my filly had to have opened it and gone in while the stud went out. What exactly happened, we will never know. LOL

-just a side note, the stud did not breed my filly, but did get the chance to breed some of the BO's mares a month or two later when he was allowed to pasture with them ;)

Well it wasnt an escape but could have been. Sunday I went to the barn to take my guys out to the pasture in thr a.m.- Usually i just pull up to the barn on my atv, yank open the doors and do my thing. Sunday was different... I parked and slowly opened the door (gut instinct i guess??) and there was my beautiful Aidan staring at me. I dont always close the barn doors unless its cold, and THANK Goodness I closed them ALL the way.

Basically I was going to blanket them Saturday night, so i left the stall door cracked and went to get their blankets. My daughter was with me, distracting me of course, and I decided it wasnt cold enough to blanket especially since they were in the barn. Well I closed up the feed room, closed the barn doors and left for the night. I mean, talk about scatter brained, I left Cooper's halter and lead rope attached all night!
The worst that happened was Aidan got into the goat's hay- ate every last bit of it.

Thank goodness... it could have been worse, and I beat myself up for it. The only time i've had to chasea horse was when Cooper raced me to the fence during feeding time and won. He jsut did a little "catch me if you can" dance and ran back in the pasture.
