Since I got my pony home, he has been great. He does everything I ask of him willingly and quietly. I have not done too much with him, as I would like him to settle down and get used to us. Well this morning I threw out some hay and he went about eating it. He was sharing with the goats and all was well. That is until I went in the pen to clean up some manure. When I walked by him he turned his rear end to me and tried to kick at me. I was a bit shocked, but I immediately yelled at him and chased him away from the food and didn't let him near him until he calmed down. Obviously DD won't be going near him while he's eating for now on. Now my question, did I do the right thing? I have never dealt with a food aggressive horse or any animal, for that matter. So horse people, please advise so I can nip this in the bud before it gets worse.
