A Pasco Sheriff’s Office deputy gave us all a big smile while rounding up a runaway horse on Wednesday morning. Who would expect to see a gorgeous paint running north on US 19 in the Hudson area at 8:00 a.m.?
When the deputy spotted the horse, he carefully pulled up alongside of him while calling the Agricultural Unit for assistance.
“We’re traveling at one horse power,” the deputy could be heard saying.
But that wasn’t all the deputy said. On the organization’s Facebook page, the polite and exemplary officer of the law is heard asking the horse to “please stop” and repeated the request twice, however the horse just wasn’t in the mindset to heed the man in uniform. Instead it has been told he had been “just horsin’ around.”
Fortunately, the horse was successfully corralled as officers directed him to take a left on Rainbow Oaks Drive and into a subdivision along Emerald Ridge Drive where he was out of danger of oncoming traffic. Deputies were then able to stop him and locate his owners. All’s well that ends well; the horse is fine and has been reunited with his family.

On 1/24 shortly before 8am one of our deputies saw this beautiful horse running north on US 19 in the Hudson area. Our deputy called in the Ag Unit and backup "We're travelling at one horse power…" They successfully corralled the horse into safety by directing it to take a left on Rainbow Oaks Dr. and into a subdivision along Emerald Ridge Dr. -away from the dangers of the rushing traffic. Eventually our deputies were able to stop the horse and bring it into safety. The horse was uninjured, the owners were located, and the horse was reunited with them.
