HAGERSTOWN - In an exhausting half-hour chase Thursday after an escaped miniature horse, a Washington County Sheriff's Department deputy had his share of close calls, watching and wincing as the gelding stopped traffic, jumped guardrails and galloped in and out of his sight. With help from a couple of Huntzberry Brothers Inc. workers, Deputy 1st Class Tom Routzahn finally caught up to Giddy-up, a young gray-and-white miniature horse, at a Hagers Crossing construction site near the Centre at Hagerstown, about six miles from the horse's home in the 15200 block of National Pike.
