    Abby, that is a very wise decision. Please don't take this as a jab at you, but your barn owner sounds stupid and selfish for wanting to keep a dangerous stallion without the proper training on the property.

    No offense taken. She is hard-headed and foolish at times and is stuck in her way of doing things. The board is cheap and good care is given to my horse and I can't complain otherwise. The stud is kept down the road away from my horses pasture and I don't have to deal with him unless I want to go into the indoor arena, then I have to lock a few extra gates and close a few doors behind me as he gets aggressive seeing the other horses and such so that way he'll lay off and let us be.

    Honey, your life is not worth free board. I agree with some of the other posts, Stallions really should be handled by someone with experience. But if you have NO CHOICE, I would suggest using an $8.00 stud chain any time you handle him until you can get him respectful.
    There are three different ways to attach the stud chain, each offering different levels of control. I would be happy to explain these to you in detail if you would like. Attach the stud chain and spend a few sessions just leading him around. If he starts to get the TINESTY BIT RUNRULEY, tug on the chain. You will be amazed at how quickly he will rethink his actions.
    Let me know if you want instructions on how to use a stud chain effectively.

    I also own a Stallion (getting him clipped in Fall, THANK GOD!),
    I have learned by owning one you can't let them get
    Away with anything, or they'll instantly take advantage of you.

    However, mine is an angel compared to Curly, lol.

    I think the horse in your story seems like it doesn't
    trust people or it has been neglected. You are taking
    A huge risk by messing with him, you have courage
    I will definitely give you that!!! Just be careful!
