Horse May Have Been Fed Marijuana Before Surrey Wedding Accident

‘I thought he was feeding her grass or alfafa,’ says horse trainer

The owner of a horse who threw a Sikh groom off its back at a wedding in Surrey, B.C., last weekend believes marijuana may be the reason the animal behaved unusually.

In a nine-second Snapchat video emailed to CBC News, a man is seen approaching Misty the horse and owner Zsa Zsa Stiasny in a trailer before the wedding, then putting his hand out to feed the horse.

Snapchat allows users to write or draw on videos before posting and this video caption says “feeding the horse weed #thebadguy.”

The man shooting the video and narrating says: “He’s going to go feed the horse some weed … He just gave the horse weed.”

On Wednesday, we asked the horse’s owner, Stiasny, about the video. She had not yet seen it and denied anyone fed her horse.

“She wouldn’t touch it anyway. There’s no way — she wouldn’t eat it — horses are way smarter than that.”
