When Lurch was assembled they missed a part - his heart
Why would I think that Lurch is capable of hurting my horses? Logical question. Here is the short answer. Lurch told me this story and I nearly gagged!.
Lurch was created in the 1950's as the only son of a couple that moved frequently due to the father's occupation. One of these moves was out of the states to a small island. As the new housing was very small, Lurch's mother, Gertie, gave Lurch's 125lb dog to a farm where he could run and play and not be cooped up in the new tiny 2 bedroom apartment. To make up for it, Gertie got Lurch a smaller dog when they got to the new home. Gertie absolutely SPOILED her only son. Unfortunately Lurch turned out to be a selfish, cruel little boy.
He hated the new dog so he decided to get rid of it. Since it was a small community, he could not give it away or chase it away (he tried - the dog always came back). So Lurch decided to kill the dog in a sneaky way. He learned that small dogs easily choke on chicken bones so he fed the dog chicken bones whenever he could.
One night, after a particularly large meal of chicken bones, the dog went into Lurch's bedroom choking. He was in obvious pain. Lurch woke up, saw the dog was choking, smiled, turned over and WENT BACK TO SLEEP. And, yes, the dog died!!!.
Anyone capable of going back to sleep after seeing a poor, defenseless animal in extreme distress is capable of anything! Especially if they think the law does not apply to them..
So if a guy EVER tells you a story from his past that is even REMOTELY close to this - RUN! They are cruel, heartless individuals who couldn't care less if they hurt you. In fact, sometimes they will do things to hurt you because it gives them a sense of power and control. You can't change them, so don't even try.
