My heart skipped a beat when the horse pinned that guy to the ground! It's very rare something makes me feel like that. Just unreal....

How would they put that stud colt down, I wonder? Would you want to be the vet with the needle in your hand walking up to that thing?

Wouldn't a bullet do it well enough?

I was thinking maybe a sniper rifle, from half a mile away.

I have told this story before.. but I worked on a farm where a GELDING acted a LOT like that stud. He was a TALENTED eventer. Very. He had many CTJ meetings. One of those was with me. That fixed him that one time on that one day. It did not fix him.

If a horse ever needed laying down, that one did. He was a horse that would engage a fight. Look for a fight.. and then if you escalated it he would too. At 1200-1300 pounds I can tell you who was going to win that battle. Not my horse.. would have loved to turn that boy out in a corral with 3 way hobbles on..

While at one of the big events.. like KY Rolex (or something) after he was sold from where I worked (where he was born) he bit his owner/rider in the back so badly he had to go to the hospital. Found out later that this horse's sire exhibited the SAME BEHAVIOR. No one ever treated this animal badly from the day he was bron. He was like that b4 and after gelding. It was genetic. Sire was a talented QH and I believe was used as a Rodeo Heading horse.

A horse like that? Never to be trusted. EVER.

A woman like that who would keep 18 studs around? Just as nuts as the horse. I have this documentary. I own it. I own it to remind me of a LOT of things.

Not sure who should be put down first in this situation. The horse or the woman who owns him. Both exhibit equally unreliable characters. Too bad in the case of the horse. He is a darn athletic beast and that is really the crime.

Sometimes lead poisoning located between the ears is the cure. Rifle with a scope...

people can sit there and say "I would have done this", or "he should have done this", but I think that's neither here nor there. the horse would never be trustable. EVER. no mater who has him, or what training he had.

I agree. I wasn't expecting that at all!

Yup, armchair trainers often see things differently. Buck has a lot of experience dealing with horses like that and a huge heart. He wouldn't suggest putting a horse to sleep easily. I am certain it pained him to say that but looking at the situation, I believe it was the best thing for everyone. Sad but true, the horse needed to be put to rest to keep people and other horses safe. The lady needed the same. What an idiot. I wouldn't be surprised if her 18 studs were often injured fighting amongst themselves. Why are some people so dumb? One can often hear the persons chest puff up when they say things like " i own 18 stallions" as if that means this is a woman that can handle anything. As if someone should look up to her. I guess I will just never get some people.

Tranq dart and then the pink juice, or a well skilled target shooter. I hope that horse did die. That woman's a fool and I think Buck was as nice as he could have been with telling her the truth. Nicer than a lot of people would have been and nicer than she should have gotten it. And still, it made her cry.

She probably still owns the other 17 studs.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music
