'Belly High in Grass' Northwest, IA 7-27-13m

(1 in a multiple picture set)

I was driving down a blacktop road when ahead it appeared that a horse was grazing on the shoulder. I slowed down, afraid it would move in front of me. When I got to it, I stopped (you can do that on a highway in farm country) and noticed that the animal was being contained with an electric fence, a strand of wire with a current in it. That's all it takes to keep them where you want them. Once they have been shocked by the fence, they will not approach it again. Anyway, this critter wasn't interested in leaving. It had too much grass to eat where it was.
