    Yes I do, but it is entirely irrelevant. It doesn't matter if the animal did it intentionally or not, they caused harm to a human. This means that they may do it in the future. You go and get the best trained dog and make an action as though you are going to hit it, chase it around the house and back it into a corner, then see what it does.
    It does matter. And a sniffer dog is just meant to sniff, not bite.

    So you aren't a neigh-sayer then?
    I have been known to pause under starter's orders, but never knowingly ponied out of the way.

    What was his case that caused him to be decommissioned?

    I entirely agree with you. We have had many animals that have been re-homed due to 'aggression' which has been entirely down to either the way the animal was used or the way it was treated. I do however not know how the law stands with horses, if you could enlighten me, that would be great.
    he (jack) gets lame from time to time so there can be extensive periods where he cant be ridden, he is a very gentle animal and fantastic with children (obv always supervised), if you leave his stable door open he follows you round the yard.
    horses are very gentle by nature and i do know the police treat their horses fantastically its just the actual use for them i dont agree with.
    i can hand on heart in my 25 years of owning horses never known one to be put down for agression or heard of any stories of it happening, i may be wrong but its very very unusual

    That was poor, we'll have to run you out of the Shire for that. Probably have to seek sanctuary in Shetland...

    Couple that with a lot of shouting and you'd be a little horse.

    Rather "way out of our hooves."
    But yes. I think we may have hijacked this thread somewhat.

    I think it is cowardly and cruel to bring horses into a riot situation. The cops put the horses in too much risk or getting hurt.
