    I have one that tosses chickens if they annoy him too much. Although I hate to admit it, it is funny when he does it!

    My horses had a pet duck last year. Actually, the duck thought he was a horse. Would eat out of their bowls and sleep near them. We tried several times to keep him away but he kept going back. Even after getting some tail feathers ripped out a couple of times, he never learned. Unfortunately I came home one night to find out he'd been stepped on and couldn't be fixed - had to euthanize.

    I am sure Duck told a bad joke and horse said 'Get outa here. No, really, get!'

    I won't look if the duck gets hurt or killed, does he?

    Look. The duck is not hurt. But he learned a lesson!

    Oh, horsie was very gentle.
    I think the duck, with red markings was attracted to the red in the horses halter. Looked like he was courting the halter, horse looked kind of disgusted as he trotted off.
