No, she probably shouldn't have been led directly back to Jessie, but if we had known they were going to attack each other that viciously, we WOULD have done it differently.
In the end, neither of them are my horse and it's not my decision.
I don't think that you did it to see the fight, and I think that you took steps to try to stop injuries, but I think there were mistakes made.
1st, this should never have gone on for 20 mins. I don't understand at the 4 and onwards min mark what you were waiting or hoping for.
2nd, the leg protection just look like wraps to me which would do little other than prevent a small scratch.
3rd, as you have heard the horse should not have been lead back.
4th, you are the barn owner I think, so why could you not have a say in this? I might be wrong about this, and I am not a barn owner, but I would not allow this to happen for 20 mins if I were.
5th, why can't someone lead a horse to a different paddock/pasture. I think you said earlier that this is not about to happen. Why not? Edit, I don't seem to be able to find this comment now, and I don't feel like spending 20 mins rereading everything, as I feel sure I read it somewhere in this thread.
