I was hit by a horse a few years ago that was being ridden by a child who couldn't control him. The kid took off, leaving me in the road with a damaged car, on the phone with 911.
My insurance company put the damage under comprehensive, said it was no different than hail damage. Something unavoidable. Just FYI
i hope those people who are injured recover soon. i feel sorry for them and the horses. since they know who the horses belong too, isn't it the horse owners responsibility to pay for the damamges? just curious

Hate to break it to ya but you're referring to a meaningless god. The only God there is is the one in heaven and his name is not Allah.

This is very scary, considering that I travel this highway every morning. I would like to know how the horses got out, and what is being done to keep them off the highway in the future. The place where they came from was once owned by Roy Clark, and I am told it now belongs to Garth Brooks.

We cannot know Debi's pain, or the pain of her family right now. We need to be considering that people who are involved might be listening to what we are saying. As for feeling bad for the animals, I don't believe anyone intentionally hit these animals. Accidents happen, but human beings should be the main concern of other human beings. It's "Do unto your NEIGHBOR as you would have them do unto you." Not, "Do unto your PET...". That is, unless you're planning on becoming a HORSE.

You do not know religion my friend. Allah is God of Muslim and God of Abraham which is God of Christian. In your own Old Testimant they reffer to Allah. You have same God as Jew and Muslim. We have differenses yes but all worship Allah.

Had always thought horses were secured in stables at night, not in paddocks. There will always be malicious people looking to harm animals. Perhaps guard dogs would help and the installation of CCTV. Very sad about the horses and I hope the people injured will pull through OK.

No one has mentioned anyone hitting the horses intentionally, this is a horrible accident. No one has mentioned putting the horses over the humans. Most have expressed concern for all involved, this is horrible from anyone's perspective. The only intentional act mentioned is the possibility that some non human let the horses out on purpose. I hope not, but it does happen, just as horses can and do find ways to get out on their own, including someone forgetting to latch a gate properly. Not accusing anyone, but it does happen. I pray for those that were injured, I pray that they recover quickly. I pray for their families, for peace and strength to get through the coming days of healing and recovery. I pray for the owners of these horses, they are awesome animals that many of us dearly love. And yes, I do hurt for those poor horses.

Dear Whatever;
I understand you wear a badge and gun and I'm grateful for people who do what you do. I'm sorry for the things that you see in your job, nobody should ever have to see those things in their lifetime. But please understand to a lot of us who are horse people, these animals are family to us and it is as bad to us to hear of something happening to them as it would be to hear of it happening to a child or elderly person. We do not and cannot view it 'with a chuckle', as you say. It's heart breaking to think of them going through the pain and suffering, my only hope is that they died instantly. I'm not putting them above human life, my heart breaks for those injured and I pray for a speedy recovery for them, as I said earlier my prayers are for all those involved. So please try to see it from our angle, there's no humor in this situation. And as horse owners, no we did not think 'are you serious', we've heard of it too many times.
Tjuan, you just get back on when somebody else stands up. Go away.
Okay, I can live with that.

To anybody who was offended by any of my posts, I do appologize.

I do issue this with the understanding that it was not how it was meant.

Just... don't put me on the same level as tjuan...

Do you people have mo heart! One of those men injured is my uncle and he is in critical condition. You want to make jokes about horses crossing the road and "Quit horsing around" i hope you never have to go through what my family is going through right now! I can not believe something so horrible can happen and people can be so sick and make fun of it. My uncle is a good man that would do anything for anyone and you dare to make fun of the event that caused him to be laying in a hospital bed right now. Very sad. Oh and its written that he (Brandon Osbourne) is dead, HE IS IN CRITICAL CONDITION NOT DEAD!!
Debi, Who are you? I am Brandon Osborn's Aunt. Brandon's Mother's name was Debi. She passed away a few years ago. I am a sister to Brandon's Dad. I don't know who you are.

I just know a lot of people.:) My wife hates it... I got to Wal-Mart for a gallon of milk and it takes me about an hour and a half.

Our prayers are with them.

I read on a chat for horsemen that there is a possibility that someone had hit Oxley's fence sometime in the night, that a lot of their fence was down. If this is true, whoever hit that fence has caused a lot of heartache, suffering, pain and useless loss of life. All you had to do was tell someone you knocked the fence down and they would have done everything possible to keep the horses from getting out. Insurance will most likely cover that fence, but people are seriously hurt, cars are destroyed and horses are dead.
