Several years ago, on the news, they were talking about a lady who stopped at some random pasture along the road, to see the new foals. Took her young child, over the fence to go see these horses, and the child was kicked and killed by a protective mother. They blamed the horse. It was horrible the child was killed, but totally preventative. There was a fence there, not only to keep the horses in, but keep other things (people included) out.!
This is a perfect example, of why you don't go up to a strange horse, especially if there are young foal present.

LOL, I would say that's one horse that the owners don't have to worry about getting stolen. I think he should stick to bikes! What a nit-wit

I saw this a couple days ago and posted it on my facebook page. We all sorta agreed that those horses weren't very wild. People tend to think that since horses are "domesticated", all horses will welcome strangers.

Equestrians know that they don't. Shoot, you can have the sweetest mare in your barn turn into a witch after she drops her first foal. Instincts over-rides any domestication process we put on an animal.

That mare really laid into him though. He's lucky he wasn't trampled if she actually considered him a viable threat. That kinda of tells me there might have been some domestication to the herd at some period in time.

If you go to youtube and read the comments this isn't a wild herd. It's a herd that belongs to a local village that was sent out for grazing... hence why they seem so "domesticated."
