pus and all... antibiotics and clean out and more... Sarah says it could be a donkey bite but swears there's evidence of canine teeth... no, it's a gelding

Stallions tend to pick fights more than mares or geldings, Jamie.

Also, see these bible verses: Job 39:19-20

But, we are meant to assume this. Phillip's post is cryptic to say the least. He's talking about canine, then a donkey, then gelded. Is the horse bitten a female in estrus, a stallion, or was it gelded too? I can see a lot of um, situations that could result in a bite before I even broach the subject was canine.

Jamie knows that... he's just being himself

And, your being cryptic as usual. You are like Paul Harvey; "And now the rest of the story!"

Phil, Jamie wins this one. Try harder to communicate.

there's nothing to win or lose... just talking about a sick horse, not about me or Jamie

bit high on his neck (punctures on both sides with what apparently was one bite) so probably eliminates the possibility of any dog, etc

the suggestion of canines is all that keeps it from the Mammoth jack biting a horse... which it may have been anyway

I really don't care about win or lose. His first post was cryptic. You can say what you want. It did not mention anything about the bite location etc. He mentioned canine and didn't follow through on that or discount it. It was just one sentence. If he had included, even a part of your post in his, the entire OP would make sense. It took you to make sense out of it.

I haven't seen it but believe it to be the back of the neck... the Mammoth jack is a stallion

Ah, finally but, Vince told me luckily. Anyway, I hope the horse improves with the antibiotics.

Other animals, than dogs, have canine teeth - including human beings and some horses*





*In addition to the incisors, premolars and molars, some, but not all, horses may also have canine teeth https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horse_teeth

for all your claimed expertise on animal behavior... had the bitten horse been a mare, it would be much easier to explain... see if you can figure it out now :)

No kidding Sherlock! I suppose you have a lot of wolves in your back yard, coyotes and foxes on your porch, and friends who like to bite horses.

Most ungulates have developed reduced canine teeth (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canine_teeth) and specialized molars (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molar_(tooth)), including bunodont (low, rounded cusps) and hypsodont (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hypsodont) (high crowned) teeth. The development of hypsodonty has been of particular interest as this adaptation was strongly associated with the spread of grasslands during the Miocene (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miocene) about 25 million years. As forest biomes declined, grasslands spread, opening new niches (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecological_niche) for mammals. Many ungulates switched from browsing diets to grazing diets, and possibly driven by abrasive silica in grass, hypsodonty became common. However, recent evidence ties the evolution of hyspodonty to open, gritty habitats and not the grass itself. This is termed the Grit, not grass hypothesis (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grit,_not_grass_hypothesis).[50] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ungulate#cite_note-50)

How in the world do you get so confused, Jamie... where did I say it was a mare?

S.V. Airlie
09-26-2015, 08:50 PM
Here's your OP Phillip! Not changed, word for word. Do you see the word "mare" in it? If you do, can you point it out to me?

pus and all... antibiotics and clean out and more... Sarah says it could be a donkey bite but swears there's evidence of canine teeth... no, it's a gelding

Forget it. Read all the posts again, the only place I used "mare in estrus" in response to the OP as a possibility because your was exceedingly, very incomplete post I've seen very few oak logs that aren't denser than your head. Good bye!

I grew up in the city, I'm scared to death of horses..

They know it..

My friend had a busted in skull from a horsy..

I do not go near them..

Main reason I never became a western TV cowboy.
