I hate it. Lakota has been only turned out with geldings(per my request)but my B.O. Turned him out with a mare because mares greatly out-number geldings at our barn. He's only been with a mare about a week and he's turned into a nut case. I tried to take him out of the pasture and a normal day would be him walking/trotting up to me. I had to chase him around and then once I finally caught him, he called out to his mare. Then he was high-stepping it all the way into the barn, totally ignoring me. Then my trainer brought a horse into the cross-ties next to us and he went nuts. He normally falls asleep in the cross-ties, today he was prancing around and totally ignoring where I was, almost pinning me a couple of times. I would try to slap him and he ignored it. Then I was leading him back out into the pasture and a boarder was bringing her mare in. He spun around me a few times and tried to go after her, I slapped him with the lead rope to get him to pay attention, he reared up(which he's never done)and continued spinning me around and almost draggin me down the lane because he was totally ignoring my futile attempts to stop him.
He's turned out by himself now but on both sides he has mares around him. Is his studdish behavior going to go away or will I ahve to move him into a smaller private pen up front by himself? Cause his behavior is driving me nuts and putting my safety and other's safety in danger. Even the stud that is at my barn doesn't act like him.
