Yep, I agree with you.

That was that guys fault for getting pawed in the head...you could see that one coming and he was standing in the wrong spot.

Seeing it coming and getting out of the way can be two different things. That horse didn't look mentally dull in any way to me and it moved well. I think the woman probably treated it like a lap dag because it was in the house.

And lets not forget that he was 'how do you say it....potty trained.' ._.

I've always used the idea of treating your horse too much like a dog in the sense that people let them be pushy and beg for things/do what they want. Never thought I'd find someone who seemed to truely, honestly think that their 1200 lb stallion was a dog. And owning 18 more of them as well? That lady is going to die, and it will be no one's fault but hers.

^^^ Yeppers...totally agree. Horses are too big to be lap dogs.

I don't remember where I heard this but in the 70's when westerns were pretty popular and they were making them by the dozen they had a orphaned foal on the set to use in the film. Slim Pickens taught the horse to rear up and put his front feet on his shoulders and eat donuts out of his mouth. Later as the horse grew up he got more and more aggresive and ended up being put down.


I bottle raised a kitten once and if I'd known how **** mean that cat would be I'd have drowned it.

I have never heard that, but I don't doubt it!

I saw the movie last night on showtime (or hbo??) anyway, enjoyed the movie, also wanted to slap that lady silly!!! The poor horse, he's in a pasture with 18 other stud horses, he's had to learn to fight to survive!!!

I just wonder how different he would been in a home where he was treated like a horse and had his manly goodies chopped off at a decent age...as soon as they appeared! He was a beautiful animal with nice movement.

It sure is a shame, how many good animals we ruin because of our selfishness.

I love that movie. I think Buck is one of the few clinicians that I would truly be honored to meet. Just his way of thinking strikes a chord with me. Maybe it's because he reminds me so much of my Dad.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
