Well said, that's my mentality.
Yes, I've heard of them, I think they'd be great for when you're shooting guns off horses, I'd like some for that purpose, but as far as jumpiness and spooking I would think that they would work the opposite way. Take away one of their senses and they have to compensate by being on high alert. Windy days do it, horses can't smell or hear as well, everyone knows how wind can turn a horse into a wreck.
