    Poor animal. Trapped in a metal box during an accident has got to be frightening. Sounds like it'll be okay though, hope so.

      The horse is doing good. She had to have 8 stitches, and has a bit of "road rash" from falling in the trailer. Other than that, she should be back to showing soon. She also had no problems getting back into another trailer.

      Who cares, the horse is okay and that's all that matters. People make mistakes everyday. If this is the worst mistake this person delt out today, we should consider ourselves lucky.

        There… fixed it for you. By the way, people don’t ” delt out mistakes”.

        Journalists gave a duty to report using the English language correctly. If I want to read an article that appears written by a 10 year old, I’d read a middle school news article.
