ROFL. A few weeks ago, I had 2 horses get loose out of their pen and crashed the fence into the big pasture. Both of those horses are broke, but they are the ones that get worked the most and they decided that they liked being loose out in the pasture so they wouldn't let me catch them. I really didn't feel like spending the entire day tracking 2 horses over about 30 acres, so I just caught one of the other horses in the pasture...my brother's cutting bred ranch horse LOL.
I put my saddle on him and decided that if the other 2 wouldn't sort off and come through the gate, they would get roped. Well, needless to say, Snuffy and I had a bit of fun "playing" with the 2 loose horses working to get them to go back out the gate.
