He's never just came up to me or anybody else and bit them or anything.
And for biting horses, I've never noticed. He runs away from my mare's and geldings. He's the fleeing horse of the group, lol.
Put the phone away and pay attention to your horses behavior. This horse is testing you and you are failing. He will continue to escalate until you make an impression. Correct him hard enough that he has no misunderstanding at all. Stop nagging and pecking at him and either use the nail, your elbow or hand and whap him a good one! You also need to stop making excuses for his behavior....ie your gloves smell like treats, you pulled you hand away too fast...etc. Believe me, I am dealing with one who was spoiled as a youngster by someone like you who never really corrected and made excuses for him-even after he double barrelled her ears ago she thinks him even considering moving his butt in a persons direction is ok.....
). You will make your own problems if you do not correct this NOW and very very clearly.
