They say if you mount a dog.....

Don't they say if you mount a dog you show him who's boss? Well, have you tried to bite your own horse? I did today. Crazy!!!?? I was trying to feed my older mare her grain and normally I carry my whip to keep back the others but my filly is becoming a little too pushy and as much as my older mare kicks and bites her she wont go away. I have been putting myself in between my mare and the filly and using the whip to back up the filly. But the filly is pushing into that now so I decided to become a herd member and show her I mean buisness. I went and backed the filly up with my body and bit her on the neck. (Not recommended, by the way). She moved away and stood there like; "what the hell just happened". She tried one more time to come close to my mare and I came up to her and tried to bite her again and she backed up and went away to eat hay. I won, but I am sure she will test again. Oh well, like I said not recommended, but I was getting alittle mad and just did it. Hopefully she will respect me when I come up and tell her to move but we'll see..... Oh by the way.... I have never mounted a dog.

That leaves me with the funniest image in my head. I'm glad you aren't mounting your dog. I may try it with mine....but she is only a chihuahua

My new favorite quote is going to be 'Better to bite your horse, than to mount your dog'

LOL...as you said...not recommended. But, IMO, if it works, it works. It is NEVER a good idea to stand between two agressive horses, especially at feed time. Both of mine were starting to try to play musical feed when feeding together...which is not good because they get different supplements. I started bringing both of them in and putting them in separate stalls just for feed time. I do it both in the morning and the evening. They had no other choice than to eat their own food out of their own buckets. If you can't do that, bring one out on a lead and feed it away from the other.

I love your quote sandy... yes I know its not a good idea. Yesturday proved that as my mare mistakenly took me for the filly and tried to bite me. I wasnt scared or mad at her. My own fault. I unfortunatley can't seperate mine. They live outside. So I have to be boss in the paddock. I will think of some way to safely make sure the filly stays back. I am pretty good to watch body language but I am not an idiot either. I know when I need to stand back. But I wont stand back to my filly. Never. She will not learn to push me. I need to work more with her to gain that respect.

My good friend bit her gelding once when he tried to bite her. I think he was shocked.

How about feeding the 2 horses away from each other? You're lucky nothing else happened to you. I would certainly not put myself between 2 angry and hungry horses during feeding times. If they are having issues, it certainly time to seperate them during feeding before some serious happens.
