Baileys Harbor trainers get missing mustang to stop horsing around

A wild mustang that escaped from its Sevastopol farm on Sunday is back with its owners. The mustang was reported loose just after 2 p.m. Sunday. The horse entered the bay of Green Bay, swimming from Bay Shore Drive to Potawatomi State Park. After being sighted in other parts of southern Door County and several attempts to contain it were unsuccessful, the mustang reentered the water and swam back to Bay Shore Drive. It was not until horse trainer Jesus “Chewy” Jauregui intervened that they could corral the horse for the first time since it escaped. Jauregui, who is also a roofer out of Baileys Harbor, says he told the owner to be patient until it decided to come back on its own.

Jauregui, who has been training horses since 2007, says the mustang seems tired from its unplanned journey around southern Door County. He adds that it is just a sign that the horse needs just a bit more work.
