We had to put a canine down who behaved similarly. Im pretty new to horse ownership, but Im one of those that think most any animal can be taught to trust. The red long-haired chihuahua we had to euthanize didn't get toothy with me, just with the other vet techs that came at her too strongly... but I digress.
I know I suggested working this horse, HARD, but if he isn't a prime match for the person who owns him, he is only bound to get even worse... He's probably miserable, always trying, full-tilt, to prove he's the boss to every human he ever meets; and it's probably doubly stressful to him when someone he doesnt know or trust tries to de-throne him by moving his feet... Euthanasia is the easy choice, but rehab for him sounds like a long and weary road. And he'll probably only ever behave for the person who manages to be his leader. Hm. A sad tale, to be sure.
