Freelance horses

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I looked out our back door a couple days ago, and saw four horses loose on the road.

We don’t know everyone in the neighborhood yet, but we do know one family with horses. I gave them a call, and they said nope, all their animals are accounted for. They suggested I get in touch with another family.

So I did, but all their horses were accounted for too.

Oh great. Freelance horses.

Meanwhile our driveway gate was open, so I closed it lest we have freelance visitors.

The horses were actually very sweet and calm, just happily browsing on the spring grass.

(Bonus photo: random pheasant.)

Meanwhile, the second family I called had an idea who the animals might below to, and were trying to reach them by phone. They drove two vehicles up with a vague hope of blocking the animals in.

It didn’t work, and the horses slipped past the second vehicle and moved deeper into the valley. That was the last any of us saw them.

Hours later, a stranger drove up to the house and introduced himself as Will. He was the owner and stopped at our place since we were the last people who had seen what direction the animals went. He said the horses had escaped from a loose gate on a piece of property located above our house. We weren’t much help locating the horses, but he was a pleasant fellow and it was nice to meet yet another neighbor.

The next morning, as Don and I finished Mr. Darcy’s morning walk, we looked up at the property above ours, and saw the horses contentedly grazing.

So the horses are freelance no more, but at least the road isn’t blocked.
