    I dont know where your located eastbank but unless you have brown bears dont worry about the horse. Never heard of a black bear bothering a horse. Believe me there are plenty of bear where I live and I have horses. brown bears may be another story.

    We have had 7 horses dropped off at our ranch over the past few years. Every one has been put in one of our fenced pastures so the owners brought them over, opened the gate, and let them in. The local rescue operation said that many people have been trying to get rid of their horses due to the tough economic times and have nowhere to go with them. I have kept two of them and just leave them in with the cows. They seem to be content and I have the vet stop by to check them out every few months. I did have to buy some grain for them but other than that they are just another cow albeit one I can't sell to slaughter.

    I saw how well fed it was so I was going to suggest visiting the neighbors.
