Is Your Horse an Escape Artist?

I just came across this video and had to share it. Check out how clever and SMART this horse is! Not only does he let his self out but then he goes around letting his buddies out, LOL.

 

Is your horse an escape artist or is there a horse at your barn like this?

 

P.S. Just to have it on record, I don’t condone letting horses continue to escape from their stalls once you know it’s happening. I hope that after filming this video, this owner took action to make sure her horse could not escape again. I shared this video because I do find it to be interesting that the horse was smart enough to figure out how to get out of his stalls. I don’t think any negative thoughts when I see this video b/c I like to think that most horse owners are responsible unless I proven otherwise. I’m not┬ánaive┬áto think that all horse owners are but I’m just saying I’m giving this owner the benefit of doubt that she took action against the escape artist after filming the video. If nothing else, this video should be a reminder that our horses are smarter then we give them credit for at times.

    I do not think this is cute at all. Once the owner has found out what he can do, he should have a chain and lock on his stall door to prevent him from causing himself harm. Getting into the grain bin could cause him to founder and possibly colic. The owner wouldn’t think it cute if she came in and saw a dead horse. This is not a good way to show off an animal’s capabilities. He could even cost her more than just a mess. Letting his buddies out could even increase the odds of more than one loss of life.

      April you make good points and we have to hope that the owner did find a way to stop her horse from escaping. I’d like to think that she only let it happen while she was there taking video and once she was done doing that she made sure he couldn’t get out or let any other horse out.

      Oh wow! Sounds like you have your hands full all the time, lol. BTW, I want a donkey. Mainly to keep the coyotes away but I’ve never owned one before. Are they easy keepers?

        They are basically easy. They need pasture land and hay if grasses run out. They need all their shots and depending on where you are located must have shot for West Nile virus. Need to have hooves trimmed several times a year. Need shelter to stay out of hot sun or cold… basically same care as a horse. They need lots of attention as they are very social. They must be with animals. Very sweet and need to be with animals if not another donkey. Must worm every month depending where you live…
