I once found a fence pulled down to be used to pull someone out of a ditch. No stock got out but it was next to a highway.

when I lived down Deer Creek Valley Ranchos, when I was in high school, my horse would jump the fence when she came into season, she would hunt for that stallion, I had a hard time keeping her in. Some years ago my friend was driving by yellow barn and a horse came from out of nowhere running with saddle and she tapped it with her bumper, didn't faze the horse at all, never found rider.
You just have to be aware all the time. We have this crazy bobcat that i swear runs out in front of me all the time.

The first accident involving the horse, in the fog was terrible. For all involved. Its a sad and frightening accident that thankfully didn’t cause human death or severe injury. Then another? Ive lived up here over 14 years and never heard of a single such misfortune. Two horses killed on 285? Within a few miles of each other? Within a few weeks of each other?
More then a few folks I spoke with who are aware of these instances have pondered the odds and what may be behind it.

Someone posted on FB today that there was grass hay dropped just outside her fenced area for her horses. She feeds alfalfa ....she’s right in between where the two horses met their sad end. She’s wondering if something sinister is afoot. I can’t blame her.

Other folks are adding to the post and I’m aware of other people expressing their own concerns about flagrant disregard of fencing and gates in regards to their own horses. It seems some people feel entitled to feeding and broaching fences, they’ve got it on camera.

I’m hoping that there isn’t some “person” out there cutting fence or otherwise releasing horses to meet an awful end on the highway. If you have horses, please go out and walk your fence and make sure they are contained. Especially if you are in the vicinity of the last casualties. Please report any concerns to LE. The FB poster with the hay outside her fence has done so. Documentation and public discussion could prevent another tragedy. :(
