Our first suicide attempt

     Well. Today was the day. Jellybean decided she was done with this nasty new pasture. The temperature was brisk, but not too hot to gallop around the pasture, searching for the way out. She galloped past the gate opening to the 200 acre field. No. She saw her opportunity… The wire fence beside the gate. Oh! But its so big! I don’t want to… but the corner… I have to… ahhhhh!

     That was a tad dramatic. What actually happened was all the horses in the pasture were galloping around, and Jellybean evidently decided to jump the fence instead of stopping. 

Robert was kind enough to model the fence that she mostly jumped. He’s 6’9″ for those of you who have never seen him in person. She ripped the wire from the post during her exertion. She looks ashamed.

    Apparently she also dreams of being an acrobat. A witness reported her “graceful” front roll as she hit the ground. She was fine, though in a bit of a mood when I made it out this afternoon. I hope all of her suicide attempts are this minor. And who knows. Maybe she wants to be a jumper when she grows up.
