horse-keeping for small spaces (ha ha)

Today Gwen demonstrated how to contain a horse in a small space, such as perhaps an urban back yard. [rolls eyes] Please realize I'm joking, but also know she did this entirely on her own.... She's been out on "lawnmower duty" around the coops but I sure didn't anticipate this situation!

It took a bit of negotiating to get her out...

She couldn't turn around, but even when I finally got her to move to the other side and she tried to back out her hips would hit the bar on top of the door and she was utterly convinced she could not get out. She was very calm, resigned to her fate I guess. Anyway I finally grabbed a couple boards and propped up the end that has the door, and once her hips would pass under the bar she quite willingly backed out.

I can just imagine the look you must have had on your face when you walked out back and did a double-take.....LOL.
I also know the next thought was automatically, "where is the camera?!". haha.
