Protecting a mini horse from dogs?
Ok, I am in the process of buying my cart and harnesses for my miniature horse. I got her last summer, and she's my first miniature. I want to use her in parades eventually. But I'll be driving her through a little community. There is no where else flat for her to drive, and even going this way I will have to get out a few times. But I am concerned about dogs. There are large dogs (shepards, rotts, huskies, etc) that run loose. It's just the way it is around her. It's rural WV. I'm used to it on my big horse! I'm not scared of that. But she is such a little thing, I am scared they may attack her.
Do any of you carry pepper spray or anything in particular that may deter a too curious pooch? I don't want to hurt a dog, unless they r trying to hurt my baby, but I'd like something to keep them detered.
