I don't think it's mean at all.
I am watching someone who is teaching horse to spook and not like to be tied. Seriously. "It's ok, it's ok, poor baby". In baby talk.
Can't even tie the horse to tack up now. Anytime another person or horse moves, owner is there to coo and cuddle in essence TELLING the horse it needs to be worried.
