There is nothing scarier than receiving a call from the Sheriffs' Department about a report of a horse loose on FM973 except receiving that call when I was out of state! Yup! That happened last week when I was in Philadelphia and Ashley was on vacation!
I immediately got on the phone and called Melissa, Mary, Cassandra, Bill, and Lisa and they dropped everything and came to my rescue! Lisa did several drive-by's and reported that she saw no loose horses on the road. So Mary, Melissa, and Cassandra went out to the back 40 to do a head count. All horses were accounted for and no extras were found! Bill then went and did a fence check to make sure that there were no breaks in the fence line. All was good. After about 45 minutes, I called the Sheriffs' Department and they confirmed that they also saw no loose horse on the road. It must have been a false alarm!
What an amazing family of volunteers that drop everything to help out and take care of our wonderful horses! Thank you Melissa, Mary, Cassandra, Bill, and Lisa for loving our horses as much as I do!
