My poor lad got his hoof wound up in a high voltage line that had fallen onto our field in the bad weather. He seems fine now but gave me quite a scare.

That sounds terrifying - are the company responsible aware of it?

Yes, it had also fallen onto our arena and the rubber had small flames on it so we jus dialed 999 and let the fire service deal with it. I think my 4yo ds was sad he was at preschool and missed all the excitement!
