This is being circulated on the
Internet. Here's the caption:

These pics came from somebody in
a hunting party in Arizona. Yes, the
horse killed the Mountain Lion! The
Cougar had been stalking them for
the better part of the morning, on
the way out to a hunt. They were
pretty sure it was after a dog. The
Cat apparently ambushed them, and
the horse pictured tossed its rider
and went into attack (defense)
mode, the horses scattered and
shots were fired but no one was
sure if they hit the Cat or not.
Unfortunately, the battle was
decently long, and it wasn't until it
was almost over that one of the
guys started snapping pics.

Snopes.com is currently researching whether this is real or not:

Is this a horse of course or a mule?

The other flavor of this photo (mentioned in snopes) calls it a mule.

I understand that's a mule (the ears are the give away). Some of the versions floating on the Internet (including Scopes) called it a mule.

Western Mule Magazine has tracked down the story of Jody Anglin's mule Berry in southwest New Mexico. The lion was dead and Berry started hitting it. The photographs got on the Internet by giving the pictures
to his grandpa and his grandpa gave them to Jody’s aunt and that aunt gave them to a friend and that friend sent them e-mail to a friend
and it went from there to what it is today.
