So we met our neighbors horse before we ever met them! He ran across the road, dodging cars mind you, into our land. Luckily we have our full 4.3 acres fenced in with electrical wire with the exception of where our gate will go soon. We don't have any horses, but I tapped into the summer when I was 13 and spent it on a horse farm and was able to calm him and hold him until animal control and then the neighbor came over. She was about it tears. Now I just need to convince my fiancee that it is time to get a horse! (I have been nagging him FOREVER) It was a fun afternoon to say the least!

Oh my! Glad he didn't get hurt crossing the road. Bless you for stepping up.

If you don't know who owns the horse, who else are you going to call? Or it could have even been someone else who called AC when they saw a loose horse running around.

A coupe of years ago, I was out taking care of my horses when I had the husband of one of the other boarders come and grab me since one of the other horses was out and was on the next road. (The owner of the property wasn't home, his wife was sick, he's not horsey and I was the only other person there.) Get to this horse and realize that I had never seen it B4 in my life! I was able to catch it w/the help of a little bit of grain. (W/out the grain, it took off running) I had no halter for it, just a lead rope over it's neck. By this time, the cops were there. No one knew who the horse belonged to. I refused to take it back to the farm where I board since there was no place to put it. If someone hadn't figured out where it belonged, AC would have been called. Instead, I ended up leading this horse back home and putting it in its field. The owners went off and left the gate open. :facepalm:
