Buddy, my approx 16mth old foster horse is a bit of a bully. He was gelded in late June and my mare is in heat (even though she is 28yrs old! Buddy brought out the 'cougar' in her). He is pretty good in the pasture, leads well and isn't really spooky. But he is a totally different horse at feeding time. Now, I understand he was starved for most of his life, but he has been well fed since March and only recently started getting pushy. Today he kicked me. I put my hand up and blocked it from hitting my face. I took his feed bucket and left the pen. After a few minutes I went back and made him let me lead him by his halter and stand quietly until I fed him and released him. I have never had a horse this young and I am afraid of a) ruining him with my ignorance b ) getting my face caved in Any help?
