You'll NEVER Believe This One......

This morning began like every other morning.... 'ME heading to the kitchen to start making a cup of tea!' UNTIL.... I looked out the back window towards the fields and saw 4 legs..... at first I was undecided as to whether it was a moose or a horse since they are similar (until you see either the tail or the head)! :) As soon as it took a couple of steps it was definately a horse!! It was a rather startling discovery.... we've had deer, moose, goats & chickens, dogs & cats and even cows.... but not a beautiful HORSE until now!???

Not sure of just what to do, Pete & Travis went outside to see if he could interest him in some grain while I called the police..... Thankfully, the horse is very friendly and allowed Pete to put him in the goat pen/field!

The officer came and looked at him and then asked how long it could stay...... (Every little girl's dream is coming true!) I'm not too sure how long our 'guest' will be with us, but for now since we have grain, water, hay and pasture looks like we have a horse.... :))) (Meanwhile, the officer will be looking for his real home.)


******** MYSTERY SOLVED********

We enjoyed him (DAKOTA) for 24 hours...... this morning at 7:45 we had a knock on the door... "I hear you had a horse come to visit..." :) One of the neighbors from 'down over the hill' had just aquired him a few days prior and some how he escaped! He went to the local PD and when the officer started to write down the info.... he knew just where his horse was!! We've known him and his family for years....... but they've only ever had cattle, so we didn't think to call!! :)

Hmmm.... well, I wonder what will happen next for excitement??
