Now my field is covered in ruts and holes and branches scattered all over because there's a wind storm going on right now and he didn't stop galloping until the cows went back in the barn. Tried to sooth him with treats and pet him just wouldn't stop running and got scared when I tried to reassure him. The cows will be back tomorrow and he can seriously become lame or colicy if he continues this way. Help?

I don't have any good advice for you.. just wanted to wish you luck with your boy and hope he calms down soon!
My girl pranced and trotted around snorting for about 4 1/2hours the first time our neighbors brought cows home.. after about a day though she realized they weren't a threat to her and she just started ignoring them. Good luck!!
