In response to americancowgurl31391:
It's not a height thing, it's a weight and muscle thing. You don't have to agree with me. I do consider my horse's feelings. My horse is very well treated. He is not abused, no matter what you may say, and he loves my very much. He trusts me like I've never seen a horse trust a person. No, I wouldn't like it if my horse turned around and kicked me, but I also can't put 300 pounds or more of force behind my kick. My kick has about 20 pounds behind it, if not less. When you smack a horse, it hurts him. Kicking is just the same. They get kicked all the time in the pasture and around their horsey friends. Just because you don't do it, doesn't mean it's wrong.
Another thing. Don't you ever say that I abuse my horse. Ever. This is what pee'd me off. My friends and I love our horses very much and our horses would do anything for us. I would never hurt my horse to the point where he'd need vet care. You don't know what you are talking about. You don't know me, and you don't know what my situation is. I'll post pictures of the horses that I said have been "kicked". I have a lot of pictures along with my comments. So get ready...
He's actually bigger than this now. This was a while back.
Poor "abused" pony!
He's the one on the right.
Of course he's abused! Geeze!
Nevada would like to tell you how he feels about your comment ^^^
