Our last horse who was there on the horse retirement plan ran off the other night. We found him about a mile away enjoying the company of a pony and a donkey in a large field. When my wife went to retrieve him they got to talking and now our last horse lives in that field with those companions on those folks horse retirement plan.

So now we are down to 4 dogs, 4 cats and 2 chickens. [ my wife bought our rescue rooster a hen]

im glad you did this glen.

horses are social creatures. herd animals, they depend on each other for all kinds of survival. if
they dont have 'herd warnings' they languish. once captured and grown 'indoors' they are more
dependent on herd to survive since the next horse is the Only Herd they know.

this was a kind thing allyall did for this horse. thanks.

So, you are saying that horses are socialists.

No wonder they ran off.

He is past 20 and has some dietary needs. We feed him hay pellets twice a day that have been wetted down along with beet pulp. We have had his teeth floated but, it seems he just cant chew the grass well enough to get the proper nutrition.

this was a kind thing allyall did for this horse. thanks.

It is pretty amazing that Horses ever survived the laws of nature. If they colic [get a bellyache] they die without a shot. They become lame relatively easily, have no real defense or fighting ability against preditors and are actually kind of fragile. Their instinct to herd is their one big defense mechanism. Even then in the wild the laws of natural selection take over. As they run as opposed to stand and fight.

Horses have been bred so much that it's hard to make generalizations about the original species in the wild. One thing for sure... wild horses can run.

Sounds like Glen's old horse is lucky to have good owners.
