Out to the barn today to fix a gate. Apparently (I didn’t see the incident) husband was coming through a gate, tripped and decided to roll before getting up from his fall.
Immediate response from the three horses that had been watching him work:
HEY SOMETHING TOOK DOWN THAT GUY!
I DON’T KNOW WHAT GOT HIM ….
BUT RUN LIKE HELL!
(hopefully, it will be too busy eating him to get us!)
We had a big laugh over lunch thinking of that. Nope, I don’t think there’s a sacrifice mentality in horses.
