The coach is a pretty big guy, so if biting the horse's ear didn't work, he could have just punched the horse (a la Mongo).

wonders if this technique works on children.

His being a hockey coach, I'm just surprised that he didn't high-stick the horse.

Because high-sticking would be a penalty!

It's a good thing horses don't play hockey, I'm sure.

Whoa nelly!

Whoa! That mustache probably tickled a bit when he bit.

*chomp*

He learned his technique from Mike Tyson of the Phillie Phlyers Phame.

Bitin' a horse on the ear is an old trick used to hold or stop a horse during the proceedings of a Wild Horse Race, often seen in the old days @ rodeos and such ... so I'm guessin' that an OK hockey coach may, at some time in a prior incarnation, have been and OK cowboy ... merely observin' ...

Horse's ears are EXTREMELY sensitive! I don't think you need to bite them. Just twist them a little and they pretty much do whatever you want. That's how they recalcitrant racehorses to enter the starting gate, as a last resort.

... um ... Moon?

That'd be BOTH ears of which y'all are speakin' about, eh?

(Dang 'bot, NEway!)

I would think that most animals would really stampede when their ears were bitten.
