Ahhh! My horse fell into neighbors pool!
Yesterday, our neighbor called us to tell us that it looked like some large animal had been in his pool and that Lilly, my horse, looked like she had cuts on her legs. So we hurried over and checked on her and she was bleeding on all fours! Thankfully, after we washed her off, they look like just minor scrapes and cuts. However, when we went to check the neighbors pool, it doesn't look so well! It looks like she must have been running (possibly a dog was chasing her) because on one side of the pool there are marks where she saw the pool and tried to slide to a stop. There is a little tear in the lining where she fell in, and on the other side, the plastic steps are broken where she tried to get out! Thankfully, our neighbors are taking it in stride and said they would talk to their insurance today. Hopefully, they can get the damage repairs covered with their insurance. If not however, it will will be a huge price to pay! Maybe with a few zeros added! Please pray for us and that every thing will get worked out!
WOW you got so lucky, i'm glad she's okay! I will definately pray for you!
I think you already got really lucky too. Its amazing that the horse did not really injure itself and was able to get out of the pool.
WOW.... That's a freak accident!!! I surely hope the insurance covers everything and that the neighbors understand that it was just that, an accident. I'll keep my fingers crossed for a good outcome.
Glad the horse is okay, and hope that things work out with the insurance.
At least she tried to use the stairs. ;)
YOU may have to pay? If that happened here, our neighbours would be in HUGE trouble from the government for not having a fenced pool. But at least they are being nice and your horse is OK. Hope the financial side turns out OK too.

I'm glad your horse is OK, I'm just a little confused on how that could happen, Did she jump your fence? How did she get out. Just curious:?
Check with your county about pool regulations. While several states do have pool barrier regulations (don't know which ones), the counties that do not have state regulations often impose their own. I'm sure you don't want to get your neighbors in trouble but if you do end up having to pay- I would look into. In fact I would look into it no matter what as having a pool with no fence is pretty dangerous.
Well, where I'm from I very rarely see a pool with a fence around it (except for at country clubs), but it does make since to have one.
