    I don't really know why I am afraid of horses... it isn't really a phobia- I can be near horses and if they are fenced in or being held by others at a safe distance away from me, I am fine. But if a horse gets really close to me or is just walking around loose, it freaks me out...

    I was bit by one a little over a year

    and a half ago. I turned my back for a second and it clamped its teeth around my shoulder and collar bone. It broke the skin but it scared me more than anything. It had never been a friendly horse and I didn't actually go into their electric fenced in area. I wasn't even petting...
