Wild, Wild Horses........
......we'll ride them some day.....(but not today) Well, that is how the song goes. Today all four of our boys decided to go on a little escapade. You know, the grass is always greener....or so they think. Well to make a very long story short, Brigadoon, aka. "Briggs" used his finger-like set of quarterhorse lips to unlock the slide bolt on the barn door, enter his stall and then slide open the stall door and escape down the aisle and out the front door of the barn. The others silently watched, and then "Wa Hooooo! FREEDOM!!!!!!" After sampling grass from each of our neighbor's yards, they decided to go for a jaunt across our acreage, thru the woods and re-appear about a half mile down the road in another neighbor's back yard. We got the call via my husband's office that our horses were visiting. A quick phone call to Mike (my Brother-in-law) found him out of breath and in hot pursuit of our wayward herd. I only wish I had pictures of the mayhem. Such is life on the farm!
