^^ Yes, but they could have easily called a vet. It only takes a few minutes to call the vet and tell them that you think they should put down your horse. There are alternatives and I don't think the horse really needed to endure that kind of suffering. And yes, I understand that you did it with a deer, but this kid hit the pony 40 or so times plus jumped on it's ribs. Apparently the pony couldn't stand on it's own but it had tried to while it was being attacked which resulted in it being hog tied. I think much kinder things could have been done here.
The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
