    I do know Ms Bruno, well and after the Colby accident. I was a barn manager at the time in Dutchess County and had her horse Gus in my care. Ms Bruno tells a different story and I believe her. The farm Colby was housed at was deficient in structure for horses. Colby could be a problem child and had a tantrum rearing repeatedly slamming into the low ceilings and beams of the barn and Ms Bruno into shear panic. No one would have perused this thus far if she were guilty of any ill intentions. And I am glad she will finally have Colby back. I have not seen Niki since 2007 and I hope she is doing great. She suffered too,

    Well I for sure would make sure I told a different version of the story to someone who wasn't present at the time of the incident. You say you met her after the incident. Apparently there were 3 witnesses. I guess they all lied. I deal with problem horses from time to time from clients. They don't get beat for temper tantrums I can assure you. I can also tell you I accidentally smacked my own head with just a snap from a rope the other day. I still have a lump. I can only imagine what that poor horse felt. I also know someone who puts quite a different spin on things they have done in the past to get away from what they did to a horse and I'm sure several others. So I do not believe your events and hope to heck she does not get her horse back.

    Oh and to elaborate on how I "snapped" myself in the head in case it gets interpreted wrong. I take my horses in and out mostly with just a rope around the neck. I misjudged badly when taking it off, had my feet stuck in the mud and could not get away.

    "Colby could be a problem child and had a tantrum rearing repeatedly ..." Horses are not children and do not have tantrums, and never rear into a ceiling more than once unless they are trying to get away from a person.

    Whoever you are, I hope this gets shut down.

    However if the horse is again in the care and control of the original alleged malefactor, I hope everyone around is aware of it. I hope they keep an eye on this person and this or any other animal.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    i do not know you and i do not know the case but horses do not have temper tantrums or repeatedly slam their heads into the same object. Your story sounds like pure BS To me, whatever the real facts were

    Wait! Maybe Colby is related to that TB in Houston who beat himself against the tree until he died. you know, that one that Alissa Grainger what's her name beat.

    Perhaps it's a genetic defect!


    (Sorry, couldn't resist...the whole "the horse did it to himself" thing was just too reminiscent of that freight train. Perhaps the house guests will begin arriving soon)

    Not only do I hope she never gets him back, I hope she gets banned from owning any animals ever again. Sick, sick person.

    For posterity. And also, What?

    "No one would have perused this thus far if she were guilty of any ill intentions?"

    Also, your explanation for the cause of Bruno's using the chain on her horse's face doesn't make sense.

    I've perused it this far.

    I don't think that's what they meant though ;-)

    Not strange. Threads come up via Google searches of an individual's name. Someone wants to make a comment and joins COTH. Isn't aware that the thread has been in the deep freeze.
