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?
