While taking the picture of Reese at the school ringing the school bell, I heard some noise outside. I turned to look and saw one of the horses going down.
Apparently the back left leg got caught up in a strap while trying to scratch or do whatever horses do with their legs while standing. Mr, went over there to see if he could help. The schoolmarm was looking for a number to call for help on her cell phone.
He went over to help calm the other horse, as he was getting very nervous while the other horse was down.
This man who was with our group had a pocket knife, so he cut the strap that tied the horse to the post. The horse couldn't get up because the strap was too short for him to rear back and get up off the ground. But, once the strap was cut he was able to get up. Mr, still had a time keeping the other horse calm.
Hey, look down the road. Is that help coming?
Why, it sure is...Help is on the way. Only too late the horse is up and seems to be fine.
Well, he didn't come for nothing. The guy was able to get the strap fixed and checked out the horse to make sure she was okay to pull the wagon back.
Now to hook up the team.
This could have turned into something pretty bad.
There is never a dull moment with us.
