Re: RC: Dogs

My horse must have had a bad experience with dogs
in the past- he goes after them.. The last barn
we were at had Blue Heelers taught to heard, and
when the people would go inside they would "play"
and chase the horses..I did not like this at all
but luckily my horse always put a stop to it by
chasing them down and snapping his teeth. -got a
tail once-  He doesnt do it while I'm on him, or
leading him, just when he's loose...and I bet
he'd be pretty mad if one was on his tail.
