Aw, poor pony. Tractor tires are dangerous things to have in the pasture, even for full sized horses.

Geez! Another proof that horses can be so dumb one can't even think about (and injure self in matter of secs). I'm glad the horse wasn't hurt!

Horses can get themselves into quite some scrapes....

I've seen a nearly identical photo to the one in the OP...only the horse was dead, after suffocating.

And here's a third, that was injured but did not die:

And two more, with tragic outcomes:

It's really no laughing matter. Tire feeders kill horses, and it's not like it's that rare of a freak occurence.

Guess we need to find a new way to recycle tractor tires... Nothing is horse/accident proof. I personally would be in a bit of a panic if I went out and found a horse like this. Not a painless way to go for a horse, and they once again prove that nothing is impossible :(
