There horses have been aound each other alot, we camp and ride all the time. And my horse hasnt always been alone, ii just he would get pasture time with my other two hoses everyday, but we just recently lost our barn so I have had to separate all of my horses and put them where I could find until spring time. But last night he came to me and gave me kisses so I think he may be coming around! When the rain let up tomorrow im going to get him out and work with him. Thank you all for your advice its very helpful!

He will figure it out but make him work if he wants to run from you let him run chase him soon coming to you will be way easier, if he still doesn't want to leave the pasture take a longe line with you and longe him do this till he decides that it is easier to go with you. I do not know the size of the pasture or the whole situation but letting him get away with what he is doing won't work out, that's forsure!
Telly, BTW, appropriate punctuation will make reading & making sense of your posts a lot easier for people.

I don't see where anyone above as advocated 'letting him get away with it' as such. But I just see his behaviour as communication, not 'disobedience' or such. My interpretation of the term 'respect' means that it cannot be forced - you can't *make* someone respect you, it's not a question that anyone 'should' or 'have to' respect you, only that you can work towards **earning** someone's respect. I also think that respect comes part & parcel with trust and understanding - if you don't have those first, you won't get respect either.

Anyway, just me being pedantic about mindset issues I suppose... Good to hear your further information & progress paint. Sounds likely it'll all be rosey again very shortly!

No worries & hope I came across as intended - reasonably & respectfully. You didn't offend me for one, I just wanted to share my opinions based on what you said. Cheers!

Ok so I think I have my boy back!! We separted the two horses because it never got any better, the other horse would not let him in the shed and we have had terrible rains here lately and it has been cold. My horse is used to a barn so I didnt want him to get sick. One day after I moved the other horse, Koda wasnt skittish anymore, I walked right up to him and put his halter on him, got him out and cleaned his feet and brushed him down. He was just like he used to be. I guess the mean horse had him scared to death! Thanks everyone for your advice!

Oh its ok! Yeah my horse would run to me too before I put him with this new horse, when I had my three horses all together they all got along so good even at feed time, they all just minded their own business. So this was a drastic change for Koda. Having another horse that he saw as a potential friend be a bully to him was traumatizing! He wasnt used to that :( I had no choice just to throw him out with this horse tho. It was either that or sell him and I wasnt about to do that because I went through ten horses to finally find him!
