Response from the owner - a week ago
Hello L. Veltz,
I'm so sorry that your son feels that way. Our dogs and horses have been a joy to most all visitors here in the past. The dogs are normally extremely gentle and fun for adults and children to be around as they fetch, and love to be petted, and are generally very well behaved. They follow along on trail on some rides, and most riders find that fun and interesting.
That particular day (unbeknownst to us) one of the female dogs evidently was coming into cycle and one of the male dogs was feeling protective. The whole event was highly unusual for the normal behavior of our dogs here.
And yes, the female dog has now been fixed, and the male dog is on schedule to be, (we did quarantine him for 10 days) and he will now be rehomed as we cannot allow a chance of that behavior repeating. I'm doubly sorry that your son was troubled by this, and in the future when we have a large group like this, the dogs will be put up. I thank you for your concern and allowing me the opportunity to explain what happen.
Sincerely, Darolyn Butler
