    Thanks for everybody's input. I noticed yesterday that Henry didn't bother DB after I yelled and scolded him so much the morning before. He hates to be yelled at more than anything. I'll be home more starting this weekend so I can watch them more. When Henry does show aggression towards DB I'll separate them.

    Sara - I briefly read the article you suggested. When I have some quiet time I want to look at it closer. It sounds like part of our problem.

    Love-a-hero - Henry is a spoiled child in an old man's body. I've thought about finding a younger horse with an attitude but with my luck they'd both pick on DB

    I'm sorry but I had to laugh when I read your post. It's like 2 little gramdpas fighting. If he is aggressive to the point where he causes such serious injury then I would throw him in a field by himself. Not fun, but that's his problem. Those guys at that age tend to be bossy as they have learned the ways of life.

    Put a grazing mask on him when your not around if your really worried I did this with my old horse to protect his feild mates and to stop getting complaints and it sure worked lol

    Ha, that's actually an interesting idea. Takes care of one end at least.

    The grazing mask sounds like a good idea. So far the injuries haven't been serious so to speak but I'm not thrilled with all the little scars. Tuesday am could have been serious if DB hadn't moved so quick. I've been keeping an eye on them though and since I screamed and scolded Henry so bad right when he gashed DB, there hasn't been any new cuts. {They aren't as dumb as they act!}

    My2geldings - Now that you point it out I have this image stuck in my head of the 2 of them with little canes swinging at each other

    I have used a grazing mask before and it is VERY effective but not too attractive lol...but anyways another idea is put a electric or another type of fence up in sight of the one they are in now. Put Henry in the other pasture when you are not there to correct the behavior or scold him.
