^ That is why I NEVER, EVER house a dog in with my livestock...I have considered Livestock Gaurdian dogs for my herds in the past, but decided to go with llamas, simply because they don't have that prey drive in them, like a dog would.
OP, I have never had a horse attacked by dogs (sheep and goats though)...but I have a friend who had a dog who would pull horses through the stock panels...didn't matter if it was an adult, or foal...if it's legs were close enough to the panel, he would grab it. I never understood why they just didn't get rid of the dog (they lost alot of stock, including some foals), as he was great with people, he just could not handle being around livestock...
