There is a mare here who has been spoiled absolutely rotten. Her main emotional state is annoyed, and her ears are always back, even when feeding.
She constantly turns her butt to me, tries to bite, and has actually bitten a small child in the past (with the excuse of "thats just how she[the mare] is"). She harasses the other mares despite being lowest on the chain and constantly is stuffing her face. No mineral deficiencies, and she is overweight.
I got tired of being bossed around by this big brat, so I have been carrying a crop with me and menacing her with it if she turns her butt to me. It doesn't work, even if I give her a smack on the butt. Ears always pinned, constantly barging in to get food, and turning her butt to every person within 30 feet.
She is not my horse, and I don't have permission yet to work her in the round pen or anything for respect. Is carrying a whip and giving her a slap with it when she's being a brat/bully okay to do? I don't want to mess with someone else's horse, but she is dangerous. She has kicked out, bitten, and is always threatening. Unfortunately I think it is all due to boredom and letting her get away with it.
What should I do?
