So Scary! and strange...

Me and my mom just came back from playing with the horses and we had them tied sharing a hay back as we always do, They are tied just close enough to reach the hay bag comfortably. We were setting up their dinner and Dixie heard the grain bin and went crazy pacing back and forth trying to get grain, spun her rump to face us and got in my horses bubble. So naturally, Solomon got mad and pinned his ears spun his rump an tried to kick, so now she kicks ad then rears and lunges at him and then they got into a little brawl of trying to bite the other horse without being bitting, so forehoofs and teeth were flying so naturally I pulled Solomons safety release and ran out of the way, my mom went for Dixie's but she snapped her ROPE halter, only god knows how.

Solomon came trotting toward me with that "Hi Mom!" expression like nothing happened and Dixie lunged at him and then I was pinned in the corner holding a grain bucket with two very grain-crazed and angry horses. Scary moment happens her. Both horses rear up and go at it! Finally they came down and Solomon swished his tail and Dixie just turned and pranced back to the hay bag by my mom and starts eating, then Solomon walks over to the hay bag and resumes eating quietly next to her like nothing happened.

The scary part was when the horses came at me and when they were fighting, they NEVER fight, they are buddies, they groom each other and follow each other around like they are glued together.

Just goes to show anything can happen. I'm glad I tied my horse in a quick-release knot.

I never have problems with those two, it caught me way off guard.

Grain-Crazed horses are scary. Neither of them were seriously hurt, although Dixie has two hoof prints stamped into her poor side and Solomons got a new bite on his hip, everyone is still alive.

That sounds so familiar Abby. I still have a hoof print bruise on my leg from grain crazy horses. Makes you wonder what goes on out there all day when we aren't looking. I'm sure they have their little feuds and get mad at each other from time to time. Glad your ok

No matter how much you trust your horses, remember they will get terretorial over feed, so it may not be the best idea to tie them together. Especially after that episode.
