It's just funny to me the number of people that try to make it the horse's fault.

I've probably been around more horses than most from owning, riding, packing, jumping, transporting, and trimming and shoeing. A lot have been what one might call "bronc-y". "Somehow" I have fewer injuries and far less severe than some folks that have been around a lot fewer critters.

A friend of mine advised some Arab owners not to pack on their horses. When they asked why, he told them you have to be smarter than the horse. It hurt feelers, but is true.

Horses are just like dogs, or cows or pickups, or women or whatever.


There are good ones and there are bad ones. Easy to spot a bad horse(most of the time..).


Didn't click on the links but the fools running up on a horses ass are just that, total fools.

Grew up with horses, never hurt once. Knock on wood....grin





The latest pony, really good little horse.

Maybe bite if he was pushing cattle in an alleyway. I rarely work cows in a corral(horseback) but his previous owner had him pretty much doing it all. Full-time working horse.

Total broke cow horse, 7-8 year old.


The best kind, not some squirrely 3 year old....grin



Tiny head, headstall bottomed out of holes and it was still a little loose and he rubbed it off 3-4 times before I finally shortened it up.

I've never been a horse kinda guy, but really never tried either. They are what they are, big fuggin animals. Kids and stupid people don't need to be around them.


Ya, horses are bad for kids.

60 years old, spent my entire life around horses - and been kicked twice. Once - a nick on the shoulder from a colt, the other broke 3 ribs by an older horse (not ours) - I did something stupid.
I won't blame most horses for people's mistakes - or stupidity (ignorance).

Cool. I kept ol' Lester's skull for a long time until somebody decided they needed it more than I did. Lester was running free following me on another horse when somehow he ran a snag up in his "arm pit" and bled out right there on the mountain. Nothing could be done. Pretty sad end for a good pony. After a couple of years I packed his head back down off the mountain.

I'm familiar with the Eastern horsey set; all though high school I shoveled poop in a stable with anywhere from 50 to 90 horses boarded. Thoroughbreds mostly, owned by folks whose avocation ran to dressage and jumping events. The sort of event where someone has to get in at 5am to groom and braid manes.

This is a considerably moneyed group with husbands and fathers associated with elite professional organizations.

Hard for me to imagine this ruling won't go unchallenged.

I would rather see the putz in jail... That is absolutely felonious child endangerment and I come close to hating horses...
