Haley (the horse) would always get excited cause she loved to stomple dogs who bothered us. I would just say "get the dog" & she would lay her ears back & go for it teeth & feet flying!  Being 15.2 hands & 1200# with legs like treetrunks she was quite impressive!  I sure miss that old batt!

Oh Jody, my heart still mourns for you of Haley.  She was a big gal, 15.2 is nothing to poke a stick at, smiling.  I bet she could surely stomp the living daylights out of anything that you said "get 'er" to -- cool  8-) :) :)   I would love one day, when you can muster that internal strength, to hear more of your tales on the back of your dear ol' Haley.  I clearly recall a few of them, but why don't you tell a story, smiling, I would be listening with keen ears.....have that most wonderful and beautiful day, health.  Cindi

The Wilderness is not for the ignorant and naive, stay the hell out or at least carry a weapon, even bambi will go after you when nobody is looking.  :evil:

I grew up on a horse farm on the NH and Maine border and spent hours on hours in the woods and never saw even one coyote in 20 something years. Years later I saw my first one as a truck driver on one of my runs into Massachusetts. They seem to be alot more common here in Mass. but have yet to hear of any person being bothered by one since I moved here seven years ago. Most of the time they run away from any humans they see or as Kathy said after they get a certain distance they turn around to check you out. We do hear of missing pets but I'd be willing to bet some of those missing were helping to feed the growing Fisher Cat population which only a few people are aware of because they are so elusive.
 Although we carry protection when we spend time in the outdoors it's not the coyotes we're worried about. It's the two legged type we're leery of. :-D :-D

To beehopper.
I live in the wilderness.
I am neither ignorant or naive.

The human's have encroached on the wild life domain. Don't blame them.

Ah KP, you just crack me up. I really like your style If my Mrs was alone in the bush Id be worried, if she was packed like you, I wouldnt even bother to worry. Cindi, I thought you were gentle as a lamb, I wouldnt have thought you would have had an attack horse, in fact I didnt know such a beast existed!

Then you know to expect the UNEXPECTED ! My post was not intended to insult anyone, but to provoke thought, at this very moment, there are people treading the Wilderness thinking they are prepared. Like the Ocean, the Wilderness on land is not for the faint of Heart & Mind, it is unforgiving.

Mick, no, it isn't me that had the attack horse, that was Jody, on her horse named Haley, but Haley left this world last spring sometime, terrible thing for Jody, it caused such dreadful sadness in her life.  Jody's mare was a tough ol' gal.  Have that wonderful and most beautiful of lives, health.
