Food Aggression or Aggression towards each other ?
OK , so everyday when I got out and feed the pigs , I will give the horses a loaf of two or bread . I just throw it out in the field and the animals eat it (horses, donkey,goat , and a dog) They have never really fought before just little nips here and there . I have had my newest Comanche for about a month now and he is the main aggressor , I think.....I was feeding them by hand a few pieces and he was pinning his ears back biting my other boys and then they were all trying to kick each other ....I don't know what the deal is , Cash and Scooter have never done that , bucked , kicked ,reared nothing . Then to top it off , my dog wanted in on the action and went to chase Cash away from a piece of bread and was barking at him and Cash went to rear up on her...thought she would get the hint , but no , she did it to Comanche as well and he almost crushed her to !
I am thinking this is some sort of food aggression , and dominance issues . I told my hubby that we are going to have to start feeding them in their own buckets or containers separately so maybe they won't fight . They are all gelded , except for the donkey .....Anyone else have this same problem or have any remedies ?
