Sometimes you just do it

Our nearest neighbors are neglectful of their critters. It was time to get hubby to work so I could do nothing more than observe the neighbor horse standing oddly in her poopy pasture. Upon reaching home I saw her still standing like an Arab work horse cross. Statue? Breathing statue. I saw that she seemed to be a little tangled in loose barbed wire. Nobody else around noticing. I managed to get my body into a crouch so that I could get through their cruddy idea of a fence by the driveway. The old white mare stood placidly as I tried to get her to move her large hooved foot. Finally. She raised it and I unsnagged her leg. I couldn't get her to entirely get out of the maze but at least the wire no longer hit her leg. I gave her a treat and finally left. As I headed down to my donkey with some hay I saw a neighbor lady finally emerge from her house. She got the horse totally free. She yelled She's happy! as the horse trotted over to a pile of hay. Duh. Now neighbor lady it might be time to find somebody who can fix all the loose barbed wire. You think?

Did the neighbor yell, "She's happy," for your benefit so you would think her horse was well kept and happy? Yes, fences should be kept up.

@RichardMeister Bless the neighbor's hearts. They seem not too capable of understanding the well kept concept. The horse kicked up her heels as she headed over to hay. That horse's pasture is just nasty to walk in. I wonder about hoof rot.

@sallypup It sounds like your neighbors should have any animals.

Poor thing! If you're going to have animals you take care of them!

It doesn't have to be expensive - twenty bucks and a couple of teenagers and it could be done. The loose crap, anyway.

@rohvannyn You are right but the neighbors just always find other things to do besides outdoors stuff.

@sallypup Sneak over there and unplug their TV. They'll come outside.

@Rohvannyn Can I hit the like button a few million times?? You have a great idea. Or maybe quit paying our power bill- no power, no running well pump.

That is what neighbors are there for. To help out when things go south.

@sharon6345 I wish they would clean up their fence act cause that horse is likely going to get into trouble again if they don't.

@sallypup maybe they can't do it right now.. You might be able to mention it to her and find out. That way you might feel better..

@sharon6345 I wish I could talk with my neighbors. They don't take care of their animals like I do- one of their dogs is on a chain for instance.

I hope they do get that loose barbed wire picked up. Poor horse

I wonder why the neighbor lady didn't notice her entangled horse in the first place.
