Random horses wandering around the apartment

A random herd of horses came ambling past my bedroom window this morning. I am not sure who was more surprised by it; Jesse, Jac or me. I happened to be looking out the window to see where the sun was rising when I noticed movement in the trees. The horses in the stalls & runs below the window also noticed.

All of the horses started bucking and were excited…except for Jac. He stood perfectly still and stared. I think if horses jaws dropped open like humans, his would have been hanging on the ground.

The small band of horses kept going past the pens so I went to the other side of the apartment to see where they would go. To my surprise the answer was…our horse trailer!

We had arrived late in the day and after unloading our horses we left the trailer open. Our horses had left unfinished hay in the trailer.

This is a video from our apartment window. The horses are not really ‘wild’ horses…they are fenced on 200 plus acres and are roaming free on that part…

    You never know just what’s going to happen in Texas, lol, So glad that you made it here through all of the snowy roads. You are about 35 miles north of where I live would so love four you to do a clinic while you’re here.

    Funny thing how word gets around where the feed or hay is…they always know and tell each other!

    We camp at a horse camp on BLM land in Central Oregon. We have to make sure the hay and grain is locked up or the cows will help themselves during the night!

    The piebald appears pretty thin.

    • Stacy on February 18, 2014 at 7:28 pm

      The thin one is old and it wasn’t a good angle:(

    I can go you one better was camping in primitive campgrounds in pop up camper, in 1977. We put coolers outside at night with 6 of us in camper. After we were asleep woke up to strange noises outside. The general store down the road rented horses out for trail rides, during the night they let them run. Since there was a pond where we were they grazed this area. They came over to our camper & started flipping lid on cooler outside checking out everything they could.
