Don't take this the wrong way. Ilove all animals. With that disclaimer. My neighbors dog got kicked in the head by one of my horses tonight. Awww. Poor dog you say? That poor dog got what was coming to him. A few weeks ago he killed at least 3 of my chickens. We asked them to keep him on thier property. Then last weekend he bit one of my stepsons friends and ripped her pants while she was riding her bike on the road. We will keep a closer eye on him they say. So I haven't been letting my chickens out of their run for the past several weeks and thought it was ok to let them out again since now the dog is biting people and my neighbors said they wouldn't let him run anymore.. So I have been letting them freerange for the past 3 days for a couple hours in the evening. Tonight the dog was taking a shortcup through the pasture to get to my chickens and my mustang got to him first. I was outside and heard the dog yelp and when I saw him he looked like his back end was partially paralyzed as he was running back home. Since we are friends with these people and they have 2 young kids (of course the dog is great with them) I went to make sure their dog got home ok. The said he convulsed for about 10 minutes and they thought they were going to have to shoot him. Then he jumped up and was fine. He does have a bit of a hoof print on his head but oh well. Lets see how stupid this dog is and how long it takes him to come back this time.
