If she just got out, she would probably have come back in a short while.

The article you linked says the family thinks he may of just wandered off. It makes me wonder if there was an open gate or something that is not mentioned in the article.
You have to keep in mind that the people who write these articles are not always horse-savvy. "White stripe on its face" instead of "blaze" makes me think they don't know much about horses. They don't think the same way we do, since we have experienced the many ways a horse can escape :P

I just hope they find the horse.

Per FP's post they did find the horse.

You so need to do something about that. No fun working getting in the way.

I just wanted to add that a stripe is a valid horse marking. It's just another word for a strip which is basically a thin blaze.

I can't remember the picture that well but I don't think the face marking was THAT wide, perhaps it could have been thought of as a strip/stripe, rather than a blaze.

Also, to the poster who stated that if he got out he would have come back:he might have, we are not sure how he was recovered. But it is also possible that if someone found him wandering they caught him and penned him while they tried to locate his owners. I've heard a lot of cases of that happening.

I'm glad he was returned safely.

I understand that a strip/stripe is a valid marking, however the horse definitely had a blaze. It's just an example that non-horse people don't undertand certain things and might think that the only way the horse could have escaped would have been by destroying the fence, rather than a gate being left open or something like that.

Fair enough, I couldn't remember the photo, and I didn't check it again. There are like 101 ways for a horse to escape. Mine's a Houdini!!

I think you are short changing the average horse's creativity saying there are only 101 ways for a horse to escape.

Lol, I probably am. No matter how many there are my pony will probably invent 100 more as revenge for that comment!
