    Ditto, that was my first thought as well

    He needs his hind end taken to the Woodshed regardless of whether or not he has all his family jewels.

    But there's a fine line between knowing the difference between a lacin' so he will learn who he needs to respect and abuse.

    New horse owners don't easily recognize the cross over point and therefore either won't discipline at all or don't take it far enough

    Of my four horses, three get upset if I just raise my voice, the fourth needs taken to the Woodshed about once a month. It used to be daily until I discovered he has food allergies on top of "generally bad attitude"

    Congrats on your new horse and best of luck getting the Alpha dominant issues resolved; which the Alpha dominant should ALWAYS be you when you are in their presence - always - no exceptions or leeway to that one Rule

    Personally I'm inclined when first introducing new horses to leave 'em alone for a couple days until things settle down. Maybe even a week. Otherwise they're just so distracted and actin crazy that you can create a problem that wouldn't have otherwise shown up if you'd just left 'em alone. After a few days the novelty of being evasive wears off. It's just like if you take a stalled horse and then let them loose in a big field for the first time in a month with other horses, don't even try to go catch them again until the run-away is out of their system! You probably won't be able to, and you'll just encourage them to become bad to catch!

    I have 3 geldings and 2 mares in and never have had a problem with them being together........mind you 4 of them have been here since they were a few months old......sounds to me that the gelding is trying to tell you get lost that she's his......I would definetly chase him off with a whip or tie him up, you don't want him coming after you if you go out to get the mare!!!

    I agree to this. I don't know how many times I have been yelled at, saying I abuse my horses when I give them the slightest smack with my hand on their neck. And usually it's from people who have never owned a horse. I have a stud once that tried to rear up and kick me with his front legs one day, so I punched him as hard as I could in his jaw. I'm sure it hurt, but I have to say, he never tried to cross me ever again after that! And some girl at high school said I should have my horses taken away because I bused them.

    Horses are too big and can be too dangerous to be gentle with them when they act up. They need to know who is boss, and usually when you show them once, they will learn and act better the next time around.

    This is what I tell people who say I abuse my horse because I physically reprimand him.

    "Go watch a bunch of horses play together. See how hard they bite and kick each other IN PLAY? They're pulling their punches there, so to speak. There is no way all hundred-and-something pounds of me is going to hit my horse even a fraction as hard as those horses do when they're just playing."

    I may be wrong, but, that new horse is just being run off of the herd. When you go out, the horse who's been there is wanting to go to you. The new horse isn't welcomed yet so the gelding runs her off, keeping her out of his herd (him and his people since he was a lone horse) protecting his herd and food. Kinda surprising since mares usually run the herds. I think it'll pass naturally with time.
