Who Let the Bulls Out? Who? Who? Who? Who?

Guess who got out today? Give you 8 guesses...Tadpole, Mud, Eyebrows, Hank, Hammerhead, Smoke, Mojo and X-Man.




I took this pic late yesterday. I think Tadpole was the ring leader. Look at that picture a little closer.



Yep, I think he already had the plan in his head. I just wasn't paying any attention. And he knew it, look at that blantant disrespect for authority!

Seems our little precious darlings walked right out the open gate. Yep, that's right, open gate. Someone forgot to close a gate behind HIM. I'm not naming any names or anything. But HE seemed to forget to close it a FEW days ago.

Luckily, the husband caught them before they made it all the way down the drive. Managed to herd them back into the pasture without too much trouble. Never a dull moment here at the Crazy M Ranch!

Man do I know how that goes. Almost like they are giving you the finger, isn't it?

We had a horse that I believe would wait to hear the gate open , the if it didn't close , zip she was gone! Silly old thing kept coming to the yard, though ...busted!!!
Funny how they just seem to know when the gate is open

little bugger.
Indigo snuck into the barn today. I turned to see her big white butt in the door. I yelled, she walked into the barn and turned around to face me and see if I was gonna come chase her out as she at her dinner many hours too early. As soon as I took a step into the barn she split back to the paddock door. Bugger.

That little bully woolly does look guilty!!

That always is one of my fears, that the gate isn't going to get shut! Sometimes I second guess myself and I'll go back out to double check, but I have not made that mistake, yet!
Glad to hear that they didn't get too far! Hopefully it won't happen again! Love that look on his face!

OMGosh!! It must have been one of those days!! When my son was leaving for weights this morning at 5:30 he comes back in and tells me one of my yearling stud colts was out and wandering around!! Crazy thing was, nothing open...He just got through the wires or something!! Thank God he's easy to catch!!

Love the tongue sticking out, he was taunting you :~)

I think I have heard the saying that if you open a gate that was closed you better close it behind you???? OOOOOPS. I keep having to remind my precious children of that!!! Annie has gotten out quite a few times, good thing she is not one to run off like she used to be when I first got her!!

I know some he's like that! A certain HE around here left the low gate our milk tanker comes through on pick up days open. Luckily for him the upper gate was shut, and all I had in the barn yard was my veeery pregnant 3 year old and her dam. They were more interested in lounging and resting their extremely large bulky and cumbersome bodies in the shade than venturing to the road!

I'd say that calls for some TIME OUT! Oh, well, I have always kinda liked alittle spunk in the kids! My donk, Jacob is my ring leader and open gates..lets everyone out. I use halters around gates cuz he will evidually slide them open /or untie anything! Stinker! Fantastic picture! AGAIN!

Psssh! please that is a face of guilt and disrespect for sure.

I'm tellin ya those moo cows/bulls can't be trusted.

and the others ones? They are saying.. No eye contact, no eye contact keep your head down....

I wish I had a smartass comment, but I don't, cause it's always ME that leaves the gate open. oooops

At least it was the gate, ours are always getting out because the fence is down somewhere. Oh sometimes I really hate old barbwire fences! Glad you rounded them up without problems.
