My gelding quit his "stud" behavior when we changed his feed. It was quite a dramatic change in attitude!

Well I am slowly switching his feed. I've been slowing introducing it to him. Mixing it with his sweet feed and they have hay all day to eat. We have feeders in the field. I forget the name of the second feed but it looks like dog food haha.
But its just i dont like his attitude because he shows off. He knows he's the alpha male.
I'm just hoping it'll change his attitude.

Mine came from a rescue as well, and he does get tense like you said, Do you know how much Body Builder is?
