wth!! kid walked up and hit my horse.



Soo after a Nice trail ride I get home, dismount in the driveway and loosen The saddle a little. go to walk him through our back yard to get to the barn/pasture and the neighbor kid is in our yard, he runs up and starts hitting him for no reason. !! My gelding was soo confused . Didn't know what to do. He won't defend himself so he just scrunched himself up and was wiggling away from the kid while trying to pay attention to me leading him. I got the kid away tied my gelding in the pasture and went and told the kids mom who just yelled at him.

-is on the search for an aggressive pony- if anyone has one in TX do tell lol.

Ugh I want to get my whip and beat kid in the face with it.

Wait, what? Is he a special needs child? How old is he?

And how did you not notice a child running up and hitting your horse?

I'm very confused.

The hills were bathed in moonlight, the shadows not so stark;
Silver light reflected off his brown hide as he held me in the dark
I love you, Mudpie!

Why was the child in your yard in the first place? How old is the child?

HAHA. I would've had a major liability on my hands... my old gelding was pretty aggressive when surprised...

You can turn your horse away from the kid and use the hindquarters to knock him over/protect yourself from aggressors.

I would whop him upside the head and smack him with my leadrope. Then march my butt over to the kids front yard, bust down his front door, and sue the cr*p out of his parents. He would never dare forget that day.

Hello! I wish I had a horse of my own.... I am working hard to earn $1500 this year though! There just doesn't seem to be very many good horses on the market though......

The thought 'pick on someone your own size' comes to mind. For your sake, I see being 4 foot tall to be quite beneficial to the situation. I woulda whooped hid happy a$$ up and down my yard if it were my kid. Errrrr, makes me mad just thinking about it.

I hope your gelding fairs well from this. Kid outta be lucky the horse is well mannered.
