Ok, I relate a incident that happened 2 years ago, you decide if my horses were protecting me. I so wish this incident was video, hubby was to busy yelling at me to record with his iphone, geez!!!
Anyways I was out in the pasture, horses were not in sight, probably further down at the bottom of the property. I was there with my dogs cleaning up a dead fall tree, when I hear barking, there is a miserable deer attacking my dogs, and looking like she wanted to kill them. We had seen her around before chasing the dogs, they would run under parked vehicles to escape her or I would yell & she left. My husband hears the commotion, he's on a hill above the pasture, he yells at me to get out of there. No way am I turning my back on a blood thirsty deer! She is in the midst of running down one of my dogs, I have a tree branch in my hands going after her to stop, then all of a sudden, the Calvary arrives!!! Both horses come galloping up, snorting steam out of their nostrils, tails flipped over their backs, Indy snakes his neck and chases the doe out of the pasture while Scotty is prancing circles around me! It was awesome, and hubby says "**** I should've taped that!" I think that was rather protective behaviour towards me & the dogs they love to hate, don't you?
