    Oh man, how scary. That's pretty much been my worst nightmare since I got my yearling. The old man doesn't have it in him to go too far these days but I have nightmares about trying to catch the baby. He almost got away from me on a trail walk one day and all I could think about was how the hell would I track him down on foot on hundreds of miles of wooded trails with numerous road outlets. We don't go anywhere without a curb chain now.

    I used to have a horse that would just jump the fence. He liked the neighbors yard. But when he got bored with that, he'd head to town. That was scary!!

    The other week someone here hit and killed three horses (one instantly, two had to be put down by sheriff's dept) at around 5 in the morning, on a crappy snowing day. The driver was in a coma but is doing okay now. Very scary, and my nightmare too.
