I understand, but doing this in an emergency would be safer than tying up on a short lead, or just letting them loose IMO. I wouldn't do it on a horse that was spooky unless. I had little to no other options.

Glad to hear you and your animals are okay. I was a bit concerned as it sounded pretty rough up there but they said one of the rivers peaked lower than they were expecting so I was hoping you would be okay.

Oh yes in an emergency situation I agree far better option than setting them free etc and if possible I would stand there with her to calm her.

Thanks LittleBettaFish , the river actually broke all previous records and rose much higher than expected but I am so thankful that we and the pets were safe. We were the lucky ones..... I feel so terrible for those who lost everything (some even lost their life) and also for all the poor animals that died as a result of the floods Helicopters are still going back and forwards day and night over our place evacuating people, bringing supplies and helping with the clean up.

Yeah it looks nasty on the news. I don't know what is worse flood or fire. At least with a flood things are still green and alive, but the smell of the water, and the damage it does to buildings afterwards is just as bad.

Got to love Australia. Sometimes I wonder why anyone even bothered to settle it at all!

lol yes a very harsh country, I think fire and flood are equally devistating. Fire desroys everything in its path and in floods when the current is strong people and animals get washed away and drown or caught up in fences/hit by debris or whatever....houses are usually swept away. Both as bad but in different ways I think........
