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

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

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!

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 :(
