What Scared the Dogs?

It happened when I was a kid in New Mexico. We lived in a place on a road to nowhere. Our nearest neighbor was a man three miles away or so. He lived on a ranch. He also had two hunting dogs, black and tan hounds named Beauty and Bo and a horse named Jump.. One day, his dogs streaked past us and hid under our house. They yelped, cried, and trembled. We could not coax them out. We decided to walk to his place. We just started out and found his horse galloping down the road without him. We fastened his reins to a post and gave him water. We found our friend limping along. He said that he was out riding and suddenly felt a chill. Everything went quiet, no bird or other sounds. The dogs went running and his horse threw him off. We never found out what really happened. What do you think? What could scare the dogs that much? Have you ever heard of anything like that before?

Sounds scary. Like a mystery.

It was a mystery and something I will never forget, the sight of those dogs yelping and diving under our house. I have never seen anything like that before or after that.

@Nevena83 I was a kid though. I don't think I knew enough to be scared but I should have been.

@akalinus I had read that dogs and other animals can see many things that we can't. Probably they saw an apparition or something spooky.

I was thinking along those lines but don't know what it could be.

As you know there were many secret experiments going on in New Mexico. They were testing something, may be special sounds that only animals can hear.

@akalinus They will never let us know about their experiments. They prefer that we believe in Aliens.

@LadyDuck I'm not sure, but I always wondered if we in a certain town were the subject of experiments. I always had a funny feeling about that but can't prove anything.

I know there were experiments but I wish I knew more about them. Some strange stuff going on there.

Were there mountain lions in that area? Both horses and dogs are scared of mountain lions and both will react that way if they smell/see them. (Sometimes a pair of dogs will attack a mountain lion but not often.) Even a person can sense when they're being watched and that will send chills down their spine. The commotion of the horse bucking the man off could have scared the mountain lion away.

@akalinus Then I have no idea what scared the dogs or the horse. I'm glad your friend didn't find out what would scare them, either.

There were mountain lions and these dogs had treed some of them in various times when they lived there. They were trained to do that and were not afraid of them.

@DaddyEvil I think it was something in the spirit realm or something paranormal or otherworldly.

I'd look into the history of the place you live. Any number of things could have happened there that would cause something like that. Ghosts or whatever. I'm not into ghosts but the more I hear the more I wonder.

@just4him We moved a lot when I was a kid. I don't move as much since I was an adult but did recently. It is sometimes easier to stay put.

That's strange but in my country if I tell the old people about this narration they'd say the dogs are able to see things we are not and that the dogs has probably seen the devil and got scared.

Anything demonic would sure scare me. I think you might be right. There is some of that stuff in NM.

@akalinus It does scare me too. Specifically when all the dogs cries together at the same time.

That is quite a story. When dogs scare like that it must be supernatural.

@popciclecold They either saw something, heard something, or sensed something unusual. I believe strange things exist. Have you ever looked at some trail cam footage on youtube or other sites? People catch bizarre entities prowling around at night.

Sounds like an alien encounter. I was watching a show that featured a few and one of them sounded almost exactly like that, and part of it was caught on video. A marching band in Ohio was also involved.

It could be. New Mexico is known for alien spacecraft and bizarre happenings. I am not familiar with a marching band incident.

I know that our friend was scared because he felt eerie and did not know what it was. He was thrown off of the horse that was also scared.

That could very well be the case. You probably have heard about the Roswell flying saucer incident. There were other cases of crashed saucers that are not so well known. So, who knows? BTW, I'm glad to see you here.

It must have been something really spooky to scare these dogs. They are hunting dogs and not afraid of anything.

@akalinus I can believe that. That would spook me even more, the fact that the dogs were afraid.

I haven't heard of anything like that, but it could have been a poisonous snake on the ground that frightened the horse or it could have been a larger wild animal that scared the dogs and horse..
