    When horses bite eachother, it is usually on the neck or shoulder...sometimes on the bottom/flank if that's the only place available. I've never bitten my horses ear, but I have certainly repremended her when she has bitten/tried to bite me or other people. I'm glad you didn't let him get away with it at least!

    Who's donkey is this? You do whatever you need to to show him that was unacceptable. If you have to, keep a small crop in hand.

    Excited.... got the vet that the horse people around my town were recommending.... he is coming out tomorrow to do a physical and immunize the horse and donkey... and the best part he is going to teach me how to worm on my own so that I don't have to "waste" money (his words) on having him do something that I am capable of.... good day other than the bite.....

    Why do horses do the biting thing... is it dominance or what??? Dumb question I know... but the problem is I don't know.....

    My guess is you have been feedin him from your hand and maybe giving him treats. That is the only time I have seen any bite unless they were babies and did not know any better

    PS there really isn't any reason to have him as a stallion. Gelding him may help his temperment

    It sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders, willing to ask for help and listen to advice. In your original Post you asked about getting goats. I have no experience with this other than seeing a horse at auction whose tail had been chewed off by goats!

    I'm also glad you found a good vet and farrier. It sounds like you are going to have some fun.
