  • Scary! As an 8 - 10 yr old child, I spent the Summers (when my Mom got tired of me being such a book worm I only came out for wood & water) out walking in the Open Range, only, THIS TIME, just across from the fence, was a Bull. A very BIG bull! Today, I’d have more sense. 😳 He wouldn’t have needed to do very much, just hit me with his head or body! I was delighted when I survived, but never told my Mom I was around a bull & his ladies.

  • Horses will not see a human or any other animal as prey, because they are strictly vegan. Also, wild horses will rarely approach humans, but normally do like friendly dogs. The lone horse was for sure curious & may have wanted to play with Sherpa. Although a horse can easily kick any animal or person causing serious & sometimes permanent damage if not death when they are startled, scared it threatened. They will usually walk or run away when they are not welcomed, unless they feel something pleasantly familiar with the other animal or person. There are times when left to themselves, a dog & horse will become fast friends. The fear Sherpa felt could have been of course the size difference, or understandably the projection of your own caution or fear, therefore felt fear himself. Had you been familiar with horses & their natural behaviors, you may have projected a secure instinct for Sherpa. It does sound like quite an adventurous experience for all of you alike. I too would feel cautious & even startled if a big wild animal of any kind approached me unexpectedly. You are lucky they horse did not raise up & kick you from fear when you attempted to intimidate it. One day while walking my sister’s small dog along the beach a huge bald Eagle came flying overhead. I’ve encountered large Golden Eagles before up close as it quietly watched me exploring a large pile of volcanic rock in a forest once. When I finished my exploration I got into my car & slowly drove away. It never moved, but continued watching me. As I left, it was necessary to drive directly next to it as it stood along the side of the road. It stood to the top of my wheel well, which was maybe thigh high. But this time at the beach, I sensed the eagle was hunting & was sizing up the small dog. Of course I picked the dog up to hold, letting the Eagle know it could not have him. We saw the same Eagle later on our hike, it was eating ocean creatures that had washed ashore, as many ocean birds do too. I have no doubt that Eagle would have grabbed the small dog, because I’ve seen video of a large Golden Eagle grab a toddler once in a park & found the child was too heavy to gain needed lift to fly away. Also the parent of the child was screaming while chasing it was also chasing it until the child was eventually dropped from a short distance. The child was shaken but otherwise fine. Luckily he had a coat on so does not get talons clutched into his flesh. Thank you for your story.

  • I had a cow chase after me when I was a kid. Scary stuff. I was on a bike and I was pedaling for all I was worth. I'm told I got too close to its calf but I didn't know any better at my age, all I knew is that humongous animal was after me.

  • If you have a leash that isn’t a retractable one, then use it to swing it in a circle next to or in front of you. Kinda like a lasso but vertical, then snap it toward the horse but not hitting it. Or start caring a bull whip with you. You don’t have to hit them with it, all you have to do is create the noise and it will scare them. Just a suggestion from someone that has grown up around horses. But I do agree with others, that most likely it was a Stallion and it is breeding season, so he was being protective over his mares!!

  • I used a fire extinguisher to break up a horrific dog fight (I had already tried other options and I was alone). It was messy, but a life saver and no harm done to anyone. I believe there are different types of extinguishers, at least in the states, but I think you could definitely carry a small one. If you do carry one or a horn, maybe try it in front of Sherpa first, so he is less likely to freak out if you do it in an emergency. I'm assuming you can't have the taser sticks? that we have. I'm not suggesting to taze a horse, but apparently the electric crackling noise they make when they are turned on is enough to scare many things away.

  • Yeah running is usually not good, if you've ever been really pissed at someone and they started running you might have experienced the instinct to chase. I have.. Something about running away triggers something and I think this is kind of universal. Very happy both of you got away with just fright.

  • While you were protecting Sherp he was standing by your side incase the moment you needed to be protected as a last resort. Sherp had that fight or flight instinct in him and he was gonna use one. He is just really smart and knows when to use which instinct. That bond with him doesnt need to get stronger. Him by your side the entire time only proves how strong your bond with him is.

    Melanie CooperMelanie CooperDay ago
  • Your best bet is to avoid a area that that has a stallion protecting his mare's I have known stallions to kill their owners and a air horn or whip may have the opposite effect on a stallion and you being able to shoulder block the horse just shows he wasn't in mood to fight

  • @Sherpa’s Day #2 of 2, The curtains, I actually liked the ones too, but the new ones do look very nice too. And you’re right the new ones do look more chic/clean and less distracting, how nice she also made cushions to match! Jamie: “Look at me talking about cushions, never thought that would happen.” 🤣😂 Then when @Sister Sarah was shopping... Jamie: “Who even are you?” 😂🤣😂🤣😂 My husband used to play a trick when we’d go shopping, all of a sudden he would dramatically step away from me (sometimes actually lightly shove me away) and yell out really loud “Get away from me lady! I don’t even know you!” 🤣😂🤣😂 It was hilarious! A couple of times some other random guy we didn’t know would call out to my husband and say something like “She could do better than you anyway!” 🤣😂🤣😂 or “She could bother me anytime she wanted!” 🤣😂🤣😂 So.. he doesn’t do it anymore LOL! Too funny! I think Sarah should get back at you for your comment “I’m with that thing”..lol.. can’t wait to see what she does LOL! 😂

  • Bloody hell that’s full on. When Horses fire up they are pretty scary and they are huge animals. No wonder you got a fright. Sometimes talking to them quietly and steadily will calm them down, as they do get flighty, and react to your fear, But hard to do when you are protecting your dog. My mate’s had to wade into water and punch a Kangaroo that was trying to drown his dog after tearing the dog’s abdomen from chest to back leg, they aren’t something to be messed with. Sorry that happened poor Sherpa and you know wonder he needs a sleep.

  • Scary stuff. You are both very brave and support each other in any situation. Great bond, guys. We have huge sheep guarding dogs here in the Transylvanian mountains and they attack you in groups. Especially if you have a dog with you and our malamutes are crazy aswell 😁 I always carry an electric teaser stick with me. It won't kill them, but it scares the hell out of them. It's enough for us to protect ourselves. Makes a pretty scary noise and it's painful enough to make them run away if needed.

  • I'm late to this. How scary 😳 good idea from another viewer..get an air horn. They sell them in cans on amazon. I used to have birds. All of them will eat the bigger seeds (sunflower?) because its like junk food for us. They're fatty and we all love fatty junk food dont we 🤪

  • Okay so if a horse ever charges you, they are in a blind run. You need to speak loudly and authoritatively and wave your hands above your head. You are the boss, not the horse. Many horses have trauma from dogs biting at their feet. Just buy a long whip, they are not expensive and light to carry. If you go there often, try going to the owner and see if they would introduce you to the horses and let you know if they are normally aggressive and see if they are trained to back off by anything specific. Be kind, horse owners are protective of their animals. Just let them know you don’t have experience and are wondering if they can teach you a little so there are no problems in the future. Also, how are you walking in someone’s horse pasture without their permission?

  • I have been riding horses my whole life and this is a very unusual situation.....Perhaps that one horse is a bit nuts because most horses are scared of their shadows and run at any instant... The umbrella was a good idea. THat said I had a boarder collie once who used to bite at the heels of horse at the horse farm I went to so I always had to tie him up...One kick from a horse is deadly...As for horses all coming at you at once...That is a scene for a horror movie!

  • 12:08, you could attach a plate to the bottom of the bird feeder to catch what gets spilled, also it would give some of the bigger birds a chance to eat too, as for the horses, you might try carrying around a pocket full of party poppers or an air horn to scare them off

  • Just found this online, maybe they were just showing you affection 😕. Err no! I wouldn’t believe either!😂. Glad you’re both safe. Just like humans, horses all have different ways of showing affection, to each other and to their people. Some horses may seem nippy, constantly putting their lips, or even their teeth, on each other and on us. ... Sometimes just standing close to each other, playing or touching each other is a sign of affection.

  • Get an Indy Jones bull whip. They look fine hanging on the wall by the door too. Otherwise get a good rope. Best is a lariat type that is fairly stiff. They also adorn the wall well and either are light and easy to carry.

    ADSADS2 days ago
  • YIKES! Glad you're both OK. I don't think of horses are being so aggressive like that, although I have very limited experience with them, and the few I have, they have been butterballs and friendly, if a little rambunctious being curious/pushing for treats. Ugh. I feel for both of you..... And then there's the van. also yikes. When they're pulled apart like that it's pretty harrowing.

Thinking of you and Sherpa in that situation broke my heart and tears to my eyes! 😱😖 I'm so happy you are both safe! So scary! Just knowing that sweet Sherpa doesn't understand is so sad. He's always felt safe around animals. I hope this doesn't break his free spirit. 😟 I love you guys! 💞

  • I got chased by one too. I backed off and when i did, it came forward. I started running and had to vault a wall just in time. Hurt my back a bit falling but could've been worse. It sounds a bit trivial and funny but they are huge! and especially Sherpa could easily get trampled or kicked. Pepper spray sounds a bit extreme... Would a loud noise work, like a horn or personal alarm?
