Thanks for helping find runaway horse

To the lady who helped me find my runaway horse near Dashwood on Dec. 1:

A huge thank-you to for taking the time to stop and pull over and wait for someone looking for their lost horse!

On Saturday afternoon, my horse left our property after I had let her out to graze on the lawn. I looked away for a few minutes and the next thing I knew she was headed down the driveway and up the road.

I ran after her and watched her trot off toward Hwy 19A, then she crossed the highway and took off up the road. I ran back home to get my car then drove up the highway to look for her.

I would never have found her if it wasn’t for the kind lady waiting on the side of the road looking for someone frantically trying to find their runaway horse. My horse had got spooked by a big truck speeding by then she ran down a long, wooded driveway totally out of sight.

I so appreciate this act of care and kindness and am truly grateful.
