Troopers were summoned to the scene and arrived to find the owner of the animals had managed to safely recapture one of the horses.

"Trooper Alex Boswell, who apparently watches a lot of western movies, was able to get a rope onto the second horse, and he and the owner walked the horses back home, their morning adventure now complete," the post said.
