With that horse, he was no safer petting it than he was trying to sack it out. That horse lunged at people multiple times as they were just walking by outside the pen. ANY sort of contact with that horse would have been dangerous because he was just so unpredictable.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

That horse was not unpredictable. That guy was standing in the wrong spot and didn't see it coming.

As for Buck, I don't see why they didn't have that horse gelded first. There is no reason why they couldn't herd him into stocks or a trailer to get him sedated safely and gelded. Isn't that how they brand and sometimes geld wild mustangs? Testosterone is the "aggression" hormone.

Ever see how aggressive a mare can get when they have high testosterone levels due to medical reasons?

I don't really agree with how he handled that stallion either.

he is a pretty brat. I am not trainer and would not want someone to lay my horse down, to big of a chance of something broken. If the stands hobbled and will go in and out of stalls easily, and his manners are improving ?? If so, I would just keep on with ground training and manners. He sounds really spoiled

Yes and for my first & only introduction to BB, that sort of eg. didn't fill me with awe & respect for him either, the way he handled it. But I do realise this wasn't meant to be an instructional film & perhaps he had just given up on trying to teach these people anything aside from allowing the horse to give them one last lesson...

the handler, is Dan Gunter him and his wife Abbie Cornish, were actually the hosts of that clinic. He is also on record for saying that he handled that situation wrong, and that in hindsight it was easy to see where he stepped in front of the shoulder, but he kinda got tunnel visioned into the exercise. Which whetherr we want to admit it or not we all do.

Also to the OP, sorry your thread got sidetracked to yet another review of the movie Buck. I agree, generally, with the geld or go home statements made. This horse would be dangerous enough without huevos, the addition of them makes it worse. He doesnt need them, he was obviously never shown or campaigned in any way shape or form. Anyone who knows me will tell you i am no fan of stallions anyways, if your not going to be a breeding facility. As my grandad always said a good stallion makes a great gelding. Just ask my wife we have the argument at least weekly about out whether our stud colt remains in tact, and you can bet yer boots he is well mannered.
If you choose to keep working him as he is, I would suggest shorter sessions 30 minutes or so early and then 30 more later in the day. giving simple clear commands of what you expect, rewarding any positive, honest effort, and quitting on a good note. Even I'm told, if that goes back to a previously learned behavior (see honey I do listen).
