How Did She Get Through?
There are George and Rose, where they're supposed to be, on THIS side of the fence. There's Bridget, having somehow beamed herself through to the other side. Note sagging tape which used to be tight.
Having achieved this counter-Newtonian marvel, she whinnied to me that she wanted to come back the old-fashioned way. So I untied the tape to let her return. Having done so, as I was re-tying, she immediately turned around and proceeded to try and rearrange her molecules once more to get back to the other side.
Here's how I think it's done (although I may well be wrong): I think she backs up to the tape, feels it on the back of her legs, carefully lifts her hind legs over, and then keeps backing so that the upper strand slides forward over her neck and ears.
Knowing Bridget, it's more than likely that the whole purpose of this trans-barrier maneuvering is for entertainment, or for the sake of an interesting challenge.
Like I said before, she needs a hobby.
