My neighbor's horse got out last night. Seems he's been out for a few days, too, going by what a neighbor Jesse told me. They had it tied up in their backyard and it got away. Chewed it's rope in half, going by the looks of the chewed end.
My backyard is fully enclosed, so I caught the big, friendly stud horse and put it back there. Fed it a large box of instant oatmeal and gave it a lot of fresh water. Oatmeal makes me thirsty, too. He's been steadily grazing on the what's left of the grasses of last summer.
The owner has until tomorrow afternoon to come pick it up or I'll have to call the Animal Control cops. Can't afford to feed this easily 1000 pound horse.
