: We don't have rope halters over here. They are rare to see, he has a flat halter on him and one rope halter but flat also (is made from a lot of ropes that are put togheter to form a flat halter). I know that rope halter will be better for him because it gives you more control. I will try to buy one of this for him. Thank you for the suggestion. And thank you also for the advice. I'm glad to hear that he has some chances to become more easy to handle. kevinshorses
: thank you a lot Kevin. Today we didn't interact with it all day. We interacted with him only to feed him and water him. He is very very calm in the stall, he doesn't have a problem with being tied. So I guess that he will not be stressed because of this. He will not have a way to spend his energy but for the moment we keep him only on hay. No grain or supplements. We will made an appointment those days to the doctor to come and geld him. This is the only alternative that we have to calm him down, and after this we will work him and train him as you mentioned.
I'm glad that you don't think that he is extremely aggressive. That's a great thing. I have never seen an horse so aggressive but I don't have a lot of experience with horses. I have only 2 years of working with horses so I didn't saw a lot in 2 years.
Thank you for the support and advice, really appreciate it. draftrider
: yes, Calin is not aggressive without a reason. He is aggressive only when he feels intimidated. If you go lonely to him, and treat him in a calm manner he doesn't show many signs of aggression. He only tries to bite you if you want to touch him. But if you keep a distance he doesn't really care about you being there. But if you try to punish him for a bad behavior he freaks out and tries to kill you. Because of this thing we don't know how to handle him.
But I'm really glad that he does have hope.
And the case of the TB gelding is really interesting. I'm sorry for that poor horse. I didn't knew that they can go insane. It's really great that you chose the right decision. FlitterBug
: I agree that there can be some stallions with this kind of behavior. But this one was really abused. I know that this is not an excuse to let them escape with that behavior. We really try to not do this. But in the same time we try to not trigger the fear that this horse has for a lot of things. He freaks out when he sees a stick, a crop or a group of people. So we will try to teach him that he doesn't have to be afraid anymore. After he will settle up we will begin his training. Right now when you punish him for something like biting he freaks out and tries to escape from you. That's the problem. We don't know how to put him to respect, how to show him that we don't tolerate his behavior without him freaking out and being scared and very defensive.
Thank you all for the support. I will keep you updated when he will have an improvement.
