Murphy's Law.

So we just so happened to catch this on camera.

We have decided that Junior's new name is Murphy because with him anything that can go wrong WILL go wrong.

I don't want to hear any rude or mean comments about this. We are aware of what happened and how bad it could have been. We do not think this was funny or anything. We treated him properly after it happened as well.

He will never be free lunged EVER again.

Yeah it was really scary. For me it almost seemed to happen in slow motion yet really fast at the same time. I just felt useless, like I knew his back legs were stuck but I couldn't anything to help him. It was agonizing. I am so glad he was able to catch his balance and that he didn't flip over.

what a turd!!! Im glad he is ok looks like just surface nicks. He decided he was done. I had worse happen to me, a horse I went to look at, was a gorgeous palomino, anyways he was being lunged in the round pen and it was wet adn muddy, well he decided to take off running and he slipped and his back leg went underneath the panel!! I thought he was going to jump back up wiht broken back legs, but he jumped back up and took off running again, just like nothing happened. It seemed like he was under there for a minute but it was really only like 10 seconds lol. Anyways im glad he is ok, but im going to agree with you and say R.I.P. Gate. I don't think it made it

quarter horses.....simply the best

I've free lunged Zeus a few times but the last time happened to be during dinner. He decided he had enough, jumped out, clearing in by almost a foot and trotted off to his stall to eat dinner. The turd, ha ha.

Glad Junior was okay!
That's scary!

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

I know exactly how you feel. One time I tied my horsey and donkey up with some hay cause we had to have both gates open. Trooper always stands well tied up. At the end he smehow pulled his rope out a bit and manged to get it cot arond his hind hoof! He freaked out and there was nothing I could do! He then fell on his side wich somehow got the rope unwraped and leaped back up right away perfectly fine!

Wow, I didn't see that coming! I thought he was just going to wipe out or something. Guess he was done for the day!

Ouch! Poor boy. Our 5 month old mule climbed over a gate like that one. Thank goodness she didn't get hurt, but the gate is dented now!
