How do you get a Horse out of the Basement?


Last night while watching the CJOH Ottawa news they had a short story about a horse being trapped in a basement. Summer the Horse from Elbert County Colorado somehow fell into a window well and tumbled into the lower room. If you were the horse in question I imagine it was not very amusing being in some stranger's family room. I could also bet my last dollar that the owners had some pretty heavy potty cleaning to do after it was all over.





As they say, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make her drink, so the stairs were not an option because of her weight. One can also well imagine Summer was pretty scared to death and had to be immediately sedated. Eventually the owner decided to call in a crew to clear out enough room around the window so they could mosey her back out.


The road and bridge crew brought in a backhoe to clear the area around a second window well, which was situated closer to ground level. Once the window was removed and exposed, Summer could finally exit through the opening. After 4 hours and no horseplay the rescue was deemed a success with Summer receiving only a few scrapes.



Will this horse news item suddenly give new meaning to the Facebook group called "Basement Horse"? People argue that it was originally called "Floor Horse" and stolen from the original internet sensation called "Ceiling Cat". The new time waster consists of photoshopping beloved "Basement Horse" into a photo and then sending it viral to millions of people. Is there anything they cannot or will not do these days?




Too bad this cyber idea of "Basement Horse" could not become reality because I am sure that it would have been far easier to photoshop Summer the Horse out of the basement than calling in the Colorado Rattlesnake Fire Department.  Because as everyone knows: "A horse is a horse, of course, of course!"

Oh, how horrible.  I have been around horses all my life.  I can only imagine how scared and upset the horse was.  That poor horse finally got out though.  It is good that it did not get hurt from it's own fear.

What a coincidence! Yesterday, coming home after visiting my mother, a horse ran out in front of my car. What a trip! I watched at he jumped into the ditch and into the road and had to stop, thinking he would jump on my hood. I couldn't back up, there was a car behind me, so I blew the horn and he looked at me as if "I" was in the wrong. He then crossed and jumped the ditch across the road and went into a field. I guess I now know why the horse crossed the road. If only a chicken would run out in front of me..., (true story)
