There's a horse in my basement!

No, not my basement — but I thought it was a funny play on the title of another blog I follow, There is a Horse in My Bubblebath.

In Elizabeth, which is a small rural town about an hour south and east of Denver, a horse named Summer fell through a window well into her owner's basement.  The article includes a pretty funny picture of the horse standing in the middle of a partially finished basement.  I guess it was something of an ordeal, though — the horse refused to go up the basement stairs, and they couldn't get her back out the way she came in without drugging her and digging out the window well to make it bigger.

It's a funny story, but it's also a good reminder of why horses belong in pastures, not backyards.

One of my best friends was a firefighter on that call! I was actually in that neighborhood picking up my dogs from his house and he told me to come see but I had to run.....bummer!

Too bad, that would have been quite the thing to see!
