      They just have no clue of the size difference, do they?
      Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

          Yikes for the dog – I hope he doesn’t get stomped. As someone from a family that has had Fox Terriers and JRTs for decades - I am a firm believer in keeping these breeds under physical control around other animals until they prove they have an atypically strong and reliable recall button. Once they lock on to anything, they focus in until they just don’t register verbal commands or self-preservation sense. Some dogs with lots of training and an owner present will manage, most just can’t especially if they are allowed to roam free without plenty of training. YMMV with individual dogs, but the odds aren’t in your favor thanks to what the breed was bred for.

          Magnificent rat dogs though. I will say one of the pups from our dog went to a dairy farm on Prince Edward Island and cleared out all their rats plus the neighbors’ rats, and behaved acceptably around the cattle. No horses on those farms though.

                  I can sympathize with that horse! Can be lovable dogs but like the previous poster said - most of the ones I know need to be under control of some sort. Unfortunately that isn't the case with many of the ones I've encountered.

                      I think there are kinder ways to get rid of your pesky dogs than let the horses do the killing.

                      Or put your horses at risk of injury because of badly managed dogs pestering/chasing them.

                        I agree... By the way we also have a JRT and although he is active, he wouldn't run around horses like this....

                          In my pics,

                          Badger, the JRT was at the time an active cattle dog, he was always in work mode around animals. What you have there are some stills of him trying to round up the Appy, who wasn't best impressed, but humored him, by going away.

                          The video I was right there with him, and was able to call him off at anytime.

                          You will all be pleased to know that he is now retired, unhurt, as we have no cows, and his skills are not needed anymore, so he has reverted to his old job of pest control officer. I have to say though there are times that he has been darn useful to have with me.

                            Looks to me like both the equines are avoiding hitting the dog on purpose. Might be a "game" the equine plays to enjoy some activity. The dark horse is in the air, but not looking like it could come down anywhere close to the dog. Still not where I would want my dog to be playing! As mentioned, the Appy is pushing the dog's space, but ended up backing off from the dog, to leave the area.

                            Unfortunately too many dogs in these situations, are out of control and can't be called off the stock. Gentle horses, less dominant ones can be hurt with dogs running at them, scared into acting like maniacs. Go thru fences. Someone gets badly hurt then.

                            Kind of a catch 22, where you want quiet, gentle horses to train and live with, but you sometimes need a horse that fights back when faced with predators! The fight-back horse usually also is a bit opinionated, has too much energy, not the easy ride of the quieter horse. Not as much fun to live with.

                              KBC, I agree with you that your way is an appropriate way to manage a Fox/JRT. I wouldn't doubt that my aunt managed Snoopy the same way.

                              Letting a dog take things to the point of what Mike's photo showed, not so much.

                              I've wished at times that I had access to a cattle-savvy dog to help me manage our ram, who is currently tied to a tree for a couple weeks because he insists on trying to breed a ewe who had a lamb Wednesday - and then insists on picking a fight with the pony if put in the pony pen. Leash control for those without recall buttons- it's not just for dogs anymore!

                              (and yes, I'm arranging a breeding lease for the ram to give him a more appropriate job and housing).

                                There is no doubt that a busy JRT is a happy JRT, Badger has none of the usual JRT 'small dog' syndrome, he is an absolute joy to own, because he has work to do.

                                      Having gotten to help take care of a JRT that got stomped on by a horse, pics like that make me a little queasy. She wasn't even bothering the horse, who was being led in from turn-out, just ran in front of him and he struck out at her. Nothing too malicious, I'd seen that horse strike at a butterfly before because he could, but he connected and ended up fracturing her pelvis in three places. Want to see a fat JRT? Put one on kennel rest for a few weeks with a couple of soft hearts that have a bag of chicken!
