Equine Romance [Jul. 4th, 2018|08:41 am]
Tony Grist
So now we know what all the screeching was about. It was next door's mare making overtures to our stallion (only he's not ours really- he just lives here). Last night he responded and got out of our field and into hers and the mare's owner came knocking on our door after we'd gone to bed (we go to bed very early) to enlist our help. We in our turn enlisted Matthew and Julia because we're just the landowners and know nothing worth knowing about horses. After a lot of clambering through hedges and over fences and standing around talking the situation was partially resolved. Patch was left in the field he'd invaded and his new girlfriend was removed to another one and Chris- who owns Patch- will be taking it from there. It remains a mystery how exactly Patch got from one field to the other. I walked the fence line on my side and the mare's owner walked it on her side and neither of us could spot the breach.

let me see, Patch is a male horse responding to female overtures. Could he possibly have JUMPED the fence?

I just don't know. There's a low fence on our side and a higher fence on their side with hedging in between. There's really no space for him to take a run at the obstacles- and if he'd tried it I'd have expected him to have tripped up or got himself entangled.

The mare is still screaming for him- saucy jade.

My guess is also that he jumped. Hormones are powerful and the adrenaline rush is huge...and a horse can be a powerful creature.

It would be a difficult jump. A low fence and a higher fence with hedging in between- and no space for a run up. I can't see how he'd have done it without hurting himself.

Whoops. I hope the mare's owner is being philosophical about it. A determined horse can nearly always squeeze through a gap in a hedge invisible to mankind.

The owner was very philosophical last night- to the point of being apologetic. The stallion's owners have reinforced the point at which we think he crossed over- and we're keeping our fingers crossed.
