    Just remember, don't let him do anything now that you don't want him to do when full grown. It doesn't take much (smack with your hand is less forceful than another horse disciplining him) to let him know what the boundaries are ;)

    Thanks, Sunny, I have been keeping that in mind! He's tried to play with me a couple of times and I smacked him away from me. I have let him reciprocate scratching when I've scratched. Right now I'm trying to let him learn that I'm not a big scary monster who is going to hurt him, but at the same time I don't want him thinking I'm his play mate either. What should I do if he kicks me again? Even if by accident from jumping around? When he got my calf I kicked him in the back of his leg, like kicking back basically. He's quite the bucker....can't waaaait....LOL

    My experience, the turn of the butt to kick is the best time to give a warning smack. Any and all discipline must be the moment they are in a negative action, otherwise they don't know or even remember what they did that caused you to smack their butt. Which is why training sessions need to be brief, they don't have much attention span before they are bored stiff lol

    Ok thanks. When I kicked his keg he didn't even know it was me lol. He didn't seee me do it, and I could tell he was like wth just happened?? I obviously didn't hurt him, but it was to show him that something happens if he kicks me!

    He bucks if you even touch his back end!! So if I smack him there I think it may just turn into a buck fest? Or if I smack him every time he does it will that curb it?

    I would smack him if he is behaving inappropriately too close to you. Although I don't smack on the top of the croup, I try to aim a smack on the rear to the side of the tail, like spanking a naughty child. It teaches them that there is a zone around you that expects proper behavior. Last summer, while bathing a mother and her 10 day old filly, I disciplined (smacked the butt) of the filly when she was kicking her dam within arm reach of where I was standing (spraying the water that was cold and upsetting her a bit). She jumped away and then went to the far side of her dam from where I was to continue kicking her mom. Although she never once even thought of kicking at a person, she learned with one simple smack on her buttocks that kicking in a person's vicinity was unacceptable. Babies learn fast, they want to please the boss and play hard with those that let them.

    Awesome thank you! I wasn't sure if it would confuse him or what, but it makes sense totally. Thank you for taking the time to help me with this! I'll fire up my spanking hand tomorrow!

    I'll get some more when I go back after a while. He was being so cute earlier it was ridiculous! I need to figure out how to do videos on here so you guys can see him.
