I don't know about herd protectors, but they scare the whillies out of horses.

Years ago I had my stallion boarded down the road from an Emu farm. This boy was afraid of nothing, absolutely noting (or so I thought,) ya see I did his training, and he was sacked out until the cows came home. Then reintroduced to things that could spook him, just to be on the safe side. Anyway, we are having a leisurely ride down the road one day and came to the Emu farm, this big boy all but jumped out of his skin, backed himself right into a ditch and stood there snorting at the monster birds on the other side of the road. We made it through all of this, finished our ride, and then went back to the boarding facility, were I talked to the owners about our experience. They said, all of the horses that had been taken past the Emu farm freaked, most before they could ever see the birds, because they smelled them

Well don't get him mad at you, cause those things can kick and gore you like nobody's business.  I have a rooster right now that is getting his just rewards tonight for doing that to me everytime I walk out and this evening I beat him in the head with a big shop broom twice and this I went on past thinking all was well for a while at least.   The darn thing ran after me while I was not looking and nabbed me from behind.  That did it. He is soup.

Sondra we had a rooster that attacked my daughter twice and tried to come at me a few times.  It was my son's 4-h project and let me tell ya as soon as 4-H was over he became his name which was "chicken noodle soup"  He never tried anything with my son he was very sweet to him it was just us girls.
