    No actually its not, I've had horses stolen by people who take their kids to come pet the pretty ponies, the kid gets attached and the parent ends up taking the animal cause they know when they will be out. Around these parts where I live, horses are stolen all the time, or are fed things that could harm them, most people don't have very much horse experience and if they get hurt, whos liable? I wouldnt say that I would shoot them but they would **** sure have some questions to answer.

    I think the most simple answer is that the horse was expecting another treat and when it figured out that you didn't have one it nipped at you. It happens all the time, especially in young horses.

    Sorry if this has already been said, I haven't read the whole topic yet!
