If this is an outgoing issue, Joshie is correct - the BO needs to be notified for more than one reason.
My boarders are not allowed to correct other horses. If there is an issue, they need to come to me and I will handle it. Some folks have zero tolerance for a horse showing an interest in a human and over react to the point of creating an issue (head shy or whip shy, etc).
This is an issue the BO needs to address. Perhaps this horse was starved due to a history of overt aggressiveness and previous caregiver scared to feed? In this case, the horse needs a good exam by a qualifed vet to try and determine if there are physical or mental reasons for the aggression.
