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.

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.
