If a bunch of guys on horses hung another guy on his horse I would say when the group left (especially if they gallop away) so would the guys horse that is getting hung. Horses hate being being left behind a do not like being left alone.

My vote is 10 seconds lol.

Why would the people who put him there leave a feed bag on the horse? Why would the people who put him there walk away from him without seeing if he actually died? That bugs me a great deal. That kind of behavior has gotten so many henchmen needlessly killed. Dang it guys. Just do your dang job. Quit trying to be creative and don't leave anything to chance. You are paid to kill this guy not think.

Ah, no. The horse if it was able to get to the bag would prob. Scarf the whole thing down in one shot. If your talking the human would feed it portions here and there maybe. Or if your talking the horse was alone with no human itl figure out how to get the grain. If your talking realism even a human wouldnt last that long without water and if the person was caring and smart enough it would go out and find water for both human and horse.

10 seconds!! LOL. Uh oh.

So OK let's say we have a feedbag AND this is this man's own horse so there is a bond and the horse is well trained/loyal????

I'm trying all option before I abandon this scene!! Haha.

In keeping the horse standing, why don't you give the man hanging the reins, so he can hold the horse under him, but maybe after a few days the horses struggle to leave will get stronger and he will finally rip the reins out of the hands of the weak hanging man?

Thinking of our 7 Horses, even with a feed bag.

Two might sit there 3-4 hours
Two maybe 6-8 hours as they are lazy
Two maybe an hour
One maybe 5 min as she is heard sour.

Sorry, 3-4 days? Not in a million years, 2 days not in 1,000 years

Well I think that about covers it. I really appreciate your expertise and time.

Have a great Sunday.

If the man is holding the reins, he is not bound. If he is not bound, he could just remove the noose as soon as the bad guys left.

I'd say tie the horse to a tree(though even bad guys know not to punish the horse, they would probably just take the horse), put the guy on a box blindfolded and wait for the man's legs to give out. If he escapes, he is out in the middle of the wilderness with no horse.

Basically no horse would stand there for no more than 10 hours...
