Arkansas men's basketball coach Nolan Richardson said Thursday it was time to re-evaluate his career after someone recently wounded a horse at his farm.

"I've been here 16 years. The first year here, my daughter was dying of leukemia and I had a bomb threat at my house," Richardson said. "Last year, somebody cut the manes on my horses. Somebody shot one of my horses with a high-powered rifle Monday morning. ... I feel like a cat with nine lives."

Arkansas beat No. 13 Kentucky 82-78 on Sunday to strengthen its bid for an NCAA tournament berth.

On Monday, Richardson said he noticed a trail of blood around his farm.

"Whoever did this knows who I am and where my farm is," Richardson said. "When I'm worried about things, I get on my horse and clear my brain. Between horses and golf, that's my outlet."

Richardson offered a $10,000 reward for the arrest of those responsible.

"It could have been somebody accidentally shooting and hit it, but I don't believe it," he said. Richardson said the shot missed the horse's heart by an inch.

The horse, Tulula, is recovering at a veterinarian's office.
