Gimme a break. An occassional broken leg from a lucky hit yes, but
anybody ever seen starved horses fight to the death for *any*
reason...much less for a round bale? I *have* seen a horse go on a hunger
strike because he was given a round bale, but that would have been
suicide, not murder. How does *one* horse defend a whole round bale?
*Why* would a really hungry horse bother to stop chewing long enough to
kill his buddy (much less the 2nd one) I assume that if they were that
neglected they were probably unshod...not much punch from an unshod weak
I have another theory. The person who delivered the round bale backed
into the field to unload the bale and the horses started chewing the
paint on his truck...so...he just started backing up at 35 mph and hit
the brakes to unload the hay. The hay hit the ground and began to roll
swiftly across the field which was slightly downhill gaining speed as it
went. The horses were in hot pursuit. They hay hit the high tensile
fence, stretched it like a sling shot then shot it back at the horses
killing two and leaving the other mentally scarred for life. Personally,
I think my story is the more plausible of the two.
