There was a big windstorm last night, and I was worried about the tarp in Jasper's pen scaring him so bad he'd do something stupid. I drove in this morning and looked across the pasture and was relieved to see him standing in his pen.
Only when I got out there he wasn't. He was actually laying down in the pasture next to it. Both gates are still chained up. He doesn't have any hair missing, any scars, or any swelling. He was sound and I rode today, one last ride before our derby tomorrow.
The LOWEST part of the fence is 4'7. Plus he would have had to jump out uphill.
This definitely did nothing to help his tarp fear, *ugh*. But... the pony can jump.
