You can have they bestest stallion in the world.... He could have perfect conformation, temperment and training....
90% of the time they will be angels!
10% they will be absolute sh*t heads...
You always have to watch them because if they see a mare and you don't get their attention back to you quickly, they will run you over to get to that mare. You can NEVER turn your back to a stallion. They are hardwired to fight and breed. They don't even know they are going to do it but then some instinct clicks in their mind and they just do it...
Mare and gelding that are mentally sound, will always think before they do something because they will figure out if thy are going to get punished for the action they will perform...
Such as biting... They will get smacked
But they know if they walk up to you and nuzzle you they wont
Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
