    If you are actually attacked by dogs there is not way you can control your horse, pull the paint gun and shot well enough off a hyper horse to be effective anyway and start shooting the ladies dogs and she calls the cops on you.. Dogs have never been a real problem. That could be because we have them around the horses at home and they are totally use to dogs so a strange dog is no big deal.. I also don't find dogs that brave that they will actually attack. Just run the horse at the dogs and they will turn tail. Anyway any form or gun to me is not effective and more trouble then it is worth.
    To the chick with a gun by the time you get out of jail you will no longer be a chick but an old hen

    The dogs snuck up on us out of nowhere. They came through the ditch silently, and didn't make a noise until they were already at our hind ends. I do not blame our horses whatsoever. They are level headed and not bothered by dogs, and we DO normally just run dogs off. That's not the point. The point is that it's ILLEGAL to let your dogs run free.

    Makes me want to take a ride with you. One of my mare's favorite games is 'launch the dog'. She lets them come up on her, then gives 'em both barrels. Lol

    I'm with sweede on that!.

    Launch the dog

    I had a neigbhor whose dog would run into my pasture and nip at the horses heels. He got launched about once a year. Usually included a broken rib or two and a vet visit. It would take a few months before he got courageous enough to try again.

    I actually witnessed a herd severely injure a dog once. I was at a friend's place back when I was a kid and they had maybe a half dozen horses including a mare and foal. The neighbours idiot german shepherds came over to stir up trouble, and the broodmare went ballistic. The dog managed to drag himself out, but I'm pretty sure he ended up being put to sleep.

    The best part? Just like every single time I hear of this happening, the dog owners blamed THEM. Yeah, like somehow in the world of the ignorant, it's somehow the fault of the property owner that YOUR dogs were running loose and came over looking for a fight. People just irk me so badly.

    Dogs and horses can be an interesting mix sometimes. We've had loose dogs run up to our horses on the trail and try to jump on them...Haha. That went over well.
