Once upon a time, several months ago, I arrived at the barn very early on a Saturday morning (say 6 AM or thereabouts) to prepare for going on some sort of trailer adventure with Spirit. I found her outside of her stall, meandering down the aisle-way of the pipe corrals.
I didn’t think much of it. Figured that the cleaning crew mistakenly forgot to latch her stall door. She was just helping to “clean up” the small bits of hay in the aisle. But just to be safe, I decided to purchase and use some carabiners to secure the stall door latch. And not just any carabiners – HOT PINK ones.
(Devilish eyes due to poor lighting conditions – but it is apropro for the topic, don’t you think?)
Here is our new solution. Let’s see how long this lasts. Our next strategy is to chain around the door post to the stall post.
