I was sitting on my couch folding laundry looking out my window thinking what a beautiful day it is today. I then noticed that Twister (my curious horse) Has his nose poked into the chicken coop and I though it was rather cute. ( I had opend up the door to the coop to let the chickens have the run of the yard today. There were chickens coming out between his legs and he was taking it all in stride. Just being nosey.

It was a short lived warm and fuzzy moment. It struck me like a bolt of lightening that I didn't see Dumas!!!
I got up and went to the window to see if I could get an eye on him. NOPE...No Dumas anywhere to be found. I decided that I should go outside and look for him. As I was slipping on my shoes Eli (my 5yo son) Came bursting into the front door screaming " DUMAS is IN the Chicken Coop!!!!!" Which I responded like any loving mother would " WHAAAAAAAAATTTTTT???!!!!" Eli repeated himself and I ran out barefoot to the chicken coop where I found my 15 HH, headshy horse standing IN
the coop!!!! He was attempting to rob my poor defenceless chickens of a bit of lasy years hay that I had let my daughter line their laying boxes with.
Can you Imagine!!!!!! I scolded Dumas he was a little child. I said "Dumas!" "You march yourself right out of there this instant!" And ya know what? HE DID!!!!! He was even holding his head low...He KNEW he shouldn't have been in there!
He made a mess of the place. I have lost all of today's eggs. The perches that we had made for the chickens to roost on are in shambles and the waterer has a big dent in it!!! :roll:
I would be angry if it wasn't so darn cute! I just thought you would all get a kick out my story!
Exibit C) Dumas the coop raider
