Today my horse killed another horse
I have been reading this forum for awhile, but never posted anything until today. Today I feel INCREDIBLE sadness as I found out that my horse chased, cornered, attacked and killed my brother's mare. In the past, at other barns he would try to attack other horses, so eventually he was placed in his own paddock. My brother who lives out of state offered to bring him to his farm to enjoy the huge beautiful pastures that he has. After some time, my brother decided to place him with several of his mares in a large pasture-no problems at all for over a year until today. I bought this horse about 6 years ago. He was a rescue horse-a Saddlebred. As far as riding...he had a "switch"- really good or really bad. Over the years that I owned him, his behavior while riding improved overall. A horse killing anther horse...I have never heard of this...this is so abnormal. I love this horse so much, but I am afraid he could hurt someone. This is a terrible situation. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
