Miniature Horses | Dogs Maul Miniature Horses In North Houston

Posted By: JR

A miniature horse lost an ear and another was bitten several times when a pair of dogs attacked them at a home in north Houston on Thursday.

The attack occurred around 9:30 a.m. at a house in the 2400 block of Eastman, according to the Houston Police Department .

Police had few details, but the homeowner’s boyfriend, Berto Aparicio , said a next-door neighbor’s two Rottweilers escaped from a fenced yard and attacked the horses.

The horses, Aparicio said, were in the back yard at his girlfriend’s home when the dogs chased them into the front yard. The horses, both four-months old, were bitten several times. Twinkle, a filly, lost an ear. Sampson, a colt, was bitten multiple times.

A veterinarian is expected to evaluate the horses.

Aparicio said the horses were Christmas gifts for his young daughter and his girlfriend’s young daughter. His girlfriend was keeping the horses at the home until they could be taken to a larger area where they would be stabled.
