    We are so over run with stupid deer that my horses probably wouldn't pay much attention. I saw 3 - 4 does run straight through my little herd while they were all asleep. My 18-month old filly opened her eyes, watched the deer for a minute, yawned and went back to sleep.

    Haven't you heard? Those are the nice deer. The evil ones hang out in the woods and wait for you to take a leisurely trail ride before ambushing you! My horse also grazes right next to deer like they aren't there. Put a saddle on that same horse, and ride him past one, and suddenly a monster there to eat him. I swear horses have a sense of humor.

    The horse I used to lease would do the same with Elk. A whole herd passes through the property daily, and she will just stare at them. But you better hope you're not under saddle when they come through, because those friendly elk just might attack.

    LOL!!! Do we have the same horse? The biggest freakout my mare had was when a couple of deer passed by door to the indoor arena while we were cantering along. She went on afterburner and did a corner so hard I ended up eating dirt.

    Out on the trails where I board she's had little bunnies rustling in the bush that made her do the faster canter 1/4 pirouette I've ever seen. To this day I don't know how I stuck that.

    Pheasants shooting up from the brush are always a treat too.

    My cousin swears to this day that she met an evil deer in the woods once. She was walking, taking pictures, when she came upon a group of deer. Apparently there was a doe that seemed to have "red" eyes and it glared at her evilly. I watched a video of the incident and while you can't see the "evil" deer, you can see the ground passing by as my cousin high-tailed it back to her house and hear her freaking out...

    My dad was talking to a mom of one of the riders I was riding with one day. She told him a story. Apparently one day a bunch of riders were riding in the outdoor and a deer appeared and her daughter's horse freaked out and she fell off.

    One day my dad was driving me home from a lesson and there had to be at LEAST fifty deer in the field. It was pretty cool...probably not so cool for those who had been traumatized by deer-related incidents .

    My husband's leased horse has the most "interesting" spook when it comes to deer. The other day, they scared a deer that was laying in the brush. It jumped up and ran away.
    Scuffy very calmly turned around on the narrow trail, started breathing vey fast and heavy, and walked very fast in the other direction. He is a 26 year old TWH.
    My husband couldn't stop laughing!
    That's the kind of spook to have"

    OMG-Mona shoots so fast sideways that it's all I can do to hang on when a deer runs by us unexpectedly on the trail. She would probably have a coronary if one actually attacked her.

    Around here we chase the deer down on our horses not the other way around!
