My horse has some food aggression and I was wondering if anyone had any ideas about if there is anything I could do about it. His food aggression was worse a few months ago, as he would push you and get really mean and so I corrected that by teaching him to stay on one side of the stall and wait while I was putting his food in his bucket and I wont let him eat till he looks at me with his ears foreword.
He does that well but once he is eating and you touch him he pins his ears back and throws his head at you. He hasn't done anything more than that but I worry sometimes because about once a week I have to have my mother-in-law (who has no horse experience) feed him and he is one of those horse's that like to test his boundaries. I don't think he will do anything, but he is still a horse with a mind of his own.
If it helps he is a 2 year old Morgan stallion who respects you with everything but when it comes to food in his stall.
