HILLSBORO, Ore. – Two horses that got loose from a farm in Hillsboro peacefully grazed on grass in a neighborhood cul-de-sac on Friday afternoon before police managed to coral them and get them back to the farm.

Julie Walden emailed KATU News to say she was driving in her neighborhood on Friday afternoon when she saw the two horses wandering across a major road.

She joined some other neighbors and they managed to coral the lost horses into a cul-de-sac, where they munched on flowers and grass.

Walden said the first police officer who arrived didn’t know what to do with the horses.

Lt. Mike Rouches with the Hillsboro Police Department said eventually four officers and the owner of the horses showed up and managed to get them back to the farm, which is located in the city near 231st and Deer Run Road.
