EquineBovine, I've noticed when putting a horse that isnt real cowy in with cattle to get them used to em- they start to develop cattle aggression. Theyll pin their ears and bite their butt when you go to work em.
We stuck my gelding in with two Herefords just to get him out of his dry lot. After he got tired of running in fear (literally, cow would look at him and he'd take of at a dead gallop round and round and round the pasture. If it wasn't hot wired, I'd bet $100 he'd have gone through the fence... he's terrified of hot wire) he made friends with the cows. Found him out there being groomed by a big ol' Hereford Cow. He never did get aggressive, just viewed them as funny looking buddies... I've never claimed he's all right in the head though, found him grooming the barn cat on multiple occasions.
