    That just sucks, he was so damn cute. I’m really sorry for the calf, but sorrier for you now. He’s not feeling any more pain. You however, have to look at this horse, and deal with your feelings about it all. You know he’s just an animal, doing animal stuff, but that’s a lot easier said than done. Sorry about your loss.

    I'm really not sure how to react to a post and comments by humans about perceived cruelty by other species.

    I'm not even vegan.

    I wonder if the unusually cold weather down there and the related stress had anything to do with it? I grew up in southeast TX, and around horses, and I can hardly get my head around that photo of the horse with all the snow and the icicles hanging from his chin. It looks like a photo taken out here in the Rockies or something.

    I knew a Golden Palomino that would go out of his way to mess with you. He was a real mixer.

    Even well trained Police horses can go crazy

    Maybe the horse is just an ass?

    I didn't realize that this is sort of like a pattern with horses. I guess they are not fully domesticated as I thought like some other animals are. It seems like horses still have a wild side to them that can not be fully tamed no matter what. I guess your best bet is just to keep the horses away from others animals that are much smaller than them. I feel pretty angry towards that horse that has done the deed, but not angry enough to put him down since they are somewhat of a wild creature and they have their instincts and such built into their DNA...they are who they are. I sure learned more about horses due to this thread than I ever did before.:oops:

    That's a real bummer man. I never heard of anything like it. I didn't remember any post about the horse being mean to it, but even if I had this wouldn't have occurred to me.
