Im still kind of shocked by the young stallion who attacked his handler. They mentioned something about a brain defect that was suffered at birth. Any Thoughts on what this might be? I've never been in such a frightening situation and hope I never am!
In the movie if I remember correctly, the lady said she had to pull the foal at birth, he had been stuck in the birth canal for some length of time. The mare had died and she actually had that foal in her house. Bottle fed babies have the tendency to be pushy but this was ridiculous! And she had a whole pasture full of stallions. I wanted to reach through the tv and throttle her...and that's putting it nicely. When that guy got pawed in the head you can tell its coming and I wouldn't of expected any less from that horse...
Far as I was concerned they should of put down the gal that owned the horse...wasn't really the horses fault, mostly a byproduct of his upbringing.

That horse would have been taken around back and shot, The owner stripped of all of her horses or atleast stallions. There's NO excuse for letting a horse get to that point.

IMHO, everyone who has horses or is thinking of having horses should be required to watch that movie and have someone tell them "This is what happens when you treat your horse like cute little puppy or a human infant. Horses don't respond well to spoiling....obviously. When you spoil the puppy, you might end up bitten. When you spoil the child, they end up in prison. When you spoil a creature that will grow up to weigh half a ton, you get killed."

I was also extremely glad that they didn't edit that part out of the movie for the sake of sugarcoating the incident.

Yeah I saw the movie too and wanted to slap that woman for having SO many stallions.. poor animals. Not saying you can't have a stallion or 2 but..18?? All together?!! Sheesh! She could've been killed too, and she's lucky Buck's trainer only got bit on the head, it could've been a lotttttt worse I felt so sorry for that stallion though, when I watched the actual movie, he was just terrified and angry at everyone.

I handle animals with a far worst reputation (See Avatar)

I will stand behind this when I say, The most dangerous animals I work with are the Bison, Cattle and Horses. I put it off to being more relaxed around these animals, Its natural to become less wary around Domesticated animals (Minus Bison).

Wow I totally missed that she had 18 stallions. I haven't seen the documentary but will check it out if I get a chance. From what I saw last night (albeit, kind of sleepy because Nightline is on past my bedtime) it had sounded like the journalist was trying to explain that the stallion had a brain deffect that was contributing to his behavior. I was confused.

Nevertheless, I've never personally seen anything like that and hope I never do!
