    What good horses!

    This was entertaining. Had to share:

    I went out to feed the horses tonight and, as usual, they saw me going to the barn and started walking. I went into the barn. Usually by this time the horses are either in the barn to meet me or just coming around the corner. Tonight, nada. Hmmm... OK.

    So I cleaned up first. Still no horses. Odd... So I went out to see what's up.

    Well, the two of them were standing at a corner of the fencing and Lisa gave me her usual "feed me" nicker. But refused to walk any further as if to say "I know it's supper, but I can't come..." Huh???

    Well, we have had a lot of wind her since last night and it would seem that a piece of plywood from our burning pile got blown through the fence lines: in one side and out the other. So both horses were patiently waiting for me to fix the fence so they could safely walk past. The minute I fixed the fence, they ran past to get to the barn for supper!

    I wonder when the fence got broken... an hour ago? This morning? Last night? What good horses!

    I'd say definitely good horses! Hope they got a little extra something for being such good citizens.

    I love the ones that show so much sense. Years back had some workers replace the old barbwire fencing with electric fencing. I was working at the time, and when I went down to do chores it was dark. I did the chores went back inside. Couple hours later took my puppy out for a piddle break. I hear a horse just whinnying and whinnying. So I grab a flash light and head on out to see what's up. The idiots doing the fencing had left the barb wire out in the pasture. My saddlebred mare was standing there with the wire wrapped around her front legs and she was just whinnying for help.
    Stood there good as gold while I got her legs out. Not a scratch on her! She was only 2 at the time. I was some impressed by her and some grateful when I think what could have happened......

    Wow! I sure hope those workers got a serious piece of your mind for that one! So glad she was ok... I would have had a heart attack.

    Yes they did get a piece of my mind and then some. And yes I almost had a heart attack;o( this mare was my first "real" horse, not someone else's mistakes. I'd worked young stock for other farms and people but had never had the chance to own one of my own and do all the work from the ground up and then keep em;o) usually I'd work the young stock get them going good then the owners would sell them. My personal horses had all been ones who had "issues" at the time they were in my price bracket. Left my husband, supported myself and two boys and got my first real horse;o) So, to say I was upset is an understatement, lol.
    This is her when she was 12 years old;o)
