Figure This One Out!
So it's 4pm, I've been busy indoors fixing a wall, making chicken stew, and painting and then cleaning my mess afterwards and then writing the previous post. So Steve hollers up, " Kola is making all sorts of noise out there, she's telling you to feed her!" So I look at the clock and think, "Geezus, that's a lot of noise for 4pm, kind of early?" So I get up to see what the fuss is all about and low and behold Misty is running around the pasture and Kola is going ape shit because she is still in the paddock. Look closely at the above picture and the fence. There are no other breaks. The handle to the gate is not broken and the tape is in relatively good condition. If anyone ever tries to tell me that horses cannot be crafty and calculating, I will call them a bold face liar! Nearest I can figure, she released the handle, oh I don't know maybe with her teeth and stomped down the tape and crawled under it! Crawled under it!
I quickly checked her for any injury and see nothing. Her legs look clean and her face. There is one patch of hair missing on her hip, but no cut or scrape. The end result? I guess they both get a little pasture time today and the fence now stays on 24/7!
