October 31, 2008: Horse versus Dog



This one comes along without any attribution or story, but it's not hard to believe.

I myself saw a horse and a dog fight in my youth.

It started out with the dog wanting a bit of fun - playing like he would with any other dog, repeatedly nipping at the horse's heels. Giving him the business.

The horse, who was generally very good-natured, didn't enjoy the game; and after a few minutes of it, was getting tired. Eventually he kind of fell over on his side. The dog took the opportunity to take one more nip at the horse's heels -- except that the heels were now free to kick out, which the horse did, catching the dog's midsection.

The dog wasn't seriously injured, but it did run across the yard making the traditional "yipe-yipe-yipe" sound that a hurt dog will make.

Ah now I've read that this is a horse & dog that play together and enjoy their "fights" with no damage coming to either.
I'll try to track down where I read it and post it as a source.

From The Sun (the shame, the shame)

Quote:
The 12-year-old colt tries to give the seven-year-old Belgian Shepherd a cheeky nip at a farm in Buchkoebel, Germany.

It begins with farm owner Jurgen Schmidt making his way down to the stables each morning to let his horses out.

Taking seven-year-old Freya, who is the farm’s working dog with him, Jurgen waits until all the other horses have left the stables before he allows the two friends to play.

“They have been playing this game since Freya was a pup,” said Jurgen, 52.

“They chase each other around each day and none of them has ever been harmed. It is incredible.”

After all, what is a horse? It's just a very big dog. /Jack Handey

reminds one of the donkey vs. mountain lion series of photos that we've had on here a couple times.

actually, a bear is closer to a big dog... in my mind anyway.

Bears don't have hooves.



amykins  Friday Oct 31 11:50 AM

How does horse taste with A-1 steak sauce anyway?

After all, what is hamburger? It's ground horse.

A horse is a dog, of course of course...

My two horses love chasing dogs. In fact, a few weeks ago, the neighbor's great dane got into the horse pasture, and my younger mustang went after the dog... Yeah, I laughed. I was very tired of the dog coming over constantly. I don't know what would have happened if the dog hadn't been able to get through the fence.



lumberjim  Saturday Nov 1 01:04 AM

well, a great dane is damn near horse sized.... maybe the mustang was ..ya know.....hubba hubba...?

It would have been dog meat. And they would have sent it off to the glue factory to come back and help glue the shoes to the horses feet.

So that would make a Great Hane or a Dorse?

I've seen horses attack a dog. My dad was helping my grandad saw using a big bandsaw which made a heap of noise which always stirred the horses up, but it happened to also be a very windy blustery day which tended to stir them up too.

My grandads dog Molly happened to be out in the paddock sniffing around as per usual when the horses came running past, startled her so she barked,and they swung round and one of the horse basically jumped completely off the ground and down on top of her with his four feet. Somehow he missed her completely and she bolted into the house yard.

It scared the crap out of me. I thought she was dead for sure.
