This happened maybe 2 or so months ago, and I’d meant to post it but forgot. I suppose I can hardly call her an escape artist when there is no chain or latch for her to undo, but she’s still smart. I hang the chain in a way that if the gate is pushed open even the smallest bit, it’ll rattle, and she’s usually super lazy and knocks a foot onto the bottom bar of the panel since part of it is raised about 3 inches off of the dirt. But when she sneaks out?
Thank god she’s just so food driven and doesn’t seem inclined to leave the property. And yes, I now latch her gate every time I leave her stall lol. She’s disappointed every time she pushes it, but no more escaping horse, because I’d like to keep my injury-prone beastie less injury-prone.
Also, during I think the 3rd week of our handwalking, she gave an almighty buck. A very happy buck. And I broke down laughing.
She’s always making me smile haha!
