ALL horses are inside indefinitely until we figure out exactly WHAT is going on. Left Trouble in last night and today, and got a call on my way home from work that the rest of the herd was out and about a mile down the road. Went down, called them back, re checked the fence, again, NOTHING. No breaks, no sags, no cold spots, no nothing. SOMETHING is going on. I don't know if it's some little punk opening the gate when no ones home/sleeping or what, but if that is what's going on there will be hell to pay. We're adding a top line to the fence and a lower one as well. We're also reenforcing the gates to be lockable, and I'm setting up a trail camera hidden at the main gate.
This has to stop. Trouble is obviously NOT the reason they got out, which is what I first thought. He will be going out supervised today, since I don't like to leave him in his stall for long periods of time, but the others will have to deal with it until we figure out what in the world is going on.
