Last year a friend of mine lost a mare through a live cover breeding. The stallion wasnt getting the job done with him and the mare being held, so the stallion owner suggested turning them out loose together. He did get her bred, and as the mare and stallion owner were talking, the stallion appeared to take great exception to this mare being in "his" paddock, so from what I was told by the mare owner, he flattened his ears and charged at her, tried to grab her by the neck and throw her on the ground. They both went into the paddock to try and get the mare out of there and he repeatedly savaged the mare and if they got within range, he pinned his ears and flew at them and drove them both out of the paddock. And then went back to savaging the mare. The SO got a lunge whip so she could try and drive him off the mare, the MO grabbed the mare and tried to get her out of the paddock, but the stallion flew at both of them so she had to let go of the mare and get the Hell out of there and then he went back to savaging the mare again
Finally she was able to get the mare out of there with a lot of holes and gashes in her neck and body. She was euthanized a few days later and the MO said as many horses as she has been around over so many years, she has never been as afraid for her life as she was trying to get her mare out with the stallion coming at her repeatedly.
I offended a stallion.
I've always been a bit wary and stayed away from horses after being thrown from one the first time I ever sat in a saddle aged about 15.
