Freedom: Lessons from a horse
Red (aka Houdini) is one of four horses pastured on my big field for the last few months. I like having them there. They keep the grass trimmed and are a pleasant sight for the eyes. But he has been escaping, with increasing frequency. I am in loco parentis, and have now recovered him some 6 times. Today he got out twice, content to stick around and munch. Once he was stuck straddling the fence, with the ineffective electric fence line dangling nearby.
