    If he was trying to grab her head and push it down, that's all part of the mating process for some roos. Was he grabbing her head from behind or attacking from the front. If he grabber her from behind, he was just looking for something to hold on to while he hopped on her back.

    Is he young/inexperienced? It also could be that if she is broody she will not accept him right now. You could A.I.
