Horses and Horse Owners Do the Dumbest Things


When I first saw this photo I was reminded of the day I saw a local cowboy pull into camp with all the windows open without the bars up on his horse trailer. Here were three horses all with their heads sticking out like dogs on a car ride. To make it worse he just traversed five miles of logging roads to get to camp. This road isn't very wide and it is shared with log trucks going in the opposite direction. There have been incidents of horses being decapitated when their owners let them hang their heads out of the trailer.

The photo above shows a horse that spooked with an open window. In this situation the trailer had to be cut away to free the horse. It takes a brave person to operate a saws-all around flailing hooves. I wouldn't want to do it even if the horse were sedated.

All right now... we can take this saw and make the window bigger or the horse smaller. Your choice.

Or leave it as an example.

Actually I don't see how this is funny. You shouldn't post comments or stories like that.

I didn't intend it to be funny at all. I wanted people to see what can happen by not closing the windows in their trailers.
