that was why we rushed to build our barn before we were ready, that was actually at my brothers place, they have 12 acres on the paved road, our 80 is adjacent to theirs. Anyway, i was on my way to my riding lesson adn my husband called he was leaving work because a friend of ours heard a call go out over the scanner for a horse in a pond and he thought it might be ours becuase of the address.

I turned around but was like 1/2 hour away, my husband got there first and called to say he was dead. but then five minutes later he called me back because when he got close, old blackhorse looked at him and whinnied. My brother had gotten home, he thought it was a tarp in the pond and when he realized what it was he called 911.

I got there just when they were getting ready to pull him out. He's a tough old guy!!! I think he went down after breakfast. I think he'd been in that pond for probably 6 hours before my brother got home from work. It was 3 somethign when he found him and 6 something when we got him out and about 2 am before we got him on his feet..... tough old boy i tell you.

Wow So glad to hear it turned out good in the end! What a fright that must have been. Poor fellow, but he sure looks shiny the next day! Mud baths and a shower to follow will do that I guess.

I often worry that something will happen to one of my guys and I won't be there in time to help. Stories like this remind me of how often we *do* get there in time.

I've pulled cows out of the mud with a tractor but never a horse Hope I never have to.
We talk about building a pond but after seeing your ordeal I think I will pass.

Ponds are very pretty but I think that one was evil! We have a little creek in our new place. If they want "fresh" water then they'll have to use that, otherwise it's water tubs for them! I am thinking about putting a sprinkler out there though, having it set on a timer so that it go's off for like an hour a day or something, maybe put it right at the edge of the fence so that if they want to stand under it they can when it's really hot, especially to get rid of the bugs... Not sure if they'd use it though.......
