Well it finally happened... Titan, My 20 yr old OTTB rescue horse finally actually BIT me...after weeks of threatening (bearing teeth, stomping feet, lunging at us) he really did it...
He's become VERY food aggressive, and we've been trying to work with him by being very gentle and showing him that we weren't going to take away all the food we had just given him. He was doing very well up until Saturday...
I'll have to get a picture and post it, Its about the size of a baseball on my upper arm, very pretty, all black and blue. Thankfully I had a sweater on, or he'd have probably broken skin.
Was just wondering if anyone had any ideas.. He's a great horse when no food is involved.
I can't Blame him for being food aggressive, he was a 1 on the Body condition scale when we got him, but now he's obviously become dangerous.
I'm at a loss as to what to do. When we work with him he's fine, Rides good, but feed him, and he turns in to 17 hands of pure devil horse.
Should I let him stay this way? Just not go anywhere near him when he eats? I feel like I need to stop this, but I don't want to make it worse.
