I have an 11 month old colt that acts like he has been abused, but he hasnt been. The reason that I know is that my husband and I are the only ones who have messed with him. While he was with his mother, we would go visit. We brought him to our farm when he was about 6 months old. We also brought his sister with him so that they could both be weaned. His sister is the most friendly horse you can have; comes up to you for love, stands to be brushed and feet picked at, etc. him, on the other hand, will not come up to you and is so skiddish. He jumps at everything! My husband jokes that if he farts, he'll take off running lol. I just don't understand why they are so different when they have the same history. I have spent lots of extra time with him to gain his trust and given him lots of treats so that he will associate me with good stuff. He's not getting much better and I don't know what else to do... suggestions???
