guess I misread that.. treating a horse like it is a victim is wrong.
They do know that , yes its getting fed , but if a person lets the horse walk over them then the horse will become rude . I do have one old 31 yr old , who dislikes me. I have not let him get away with being rude, but he bite, kick and strike me. He gets smacked for it, but it is a constant thing with him. Not to so much to anyone else, just me. Rotten old horse. He was that way from day two, I had to doctor him and he associates me with pain now. He had lots of issues when I got him. Abcess after abcess, cuts etc. Lots of antibiotic shots.
