I need help with my weanling!
So, my colt is nearly four months old. He's been weaned and is doing good. But he has recently picked up a nasty habit of kicking! When he wanted to nurse, he'd always run in front of his mom to cut her off so he could. Well he tried doing this when my mom was feeding him, and when she pushed him away, he swung his butt around and kicked, hard! So when I got home, I walked all around the pasture with his grain, and anytime he tried to get in my space I swung a rope at him. I thought it was fixed. Well today, I went outside and gave him his hay, and was picking up his feet to clean them (it's muddy) and he jerked his foot away and kicked the back of my leg..how can I stop this? We have three young kids around here and his kicking is dangerous. Sorry it is so long! Thanks in advance :)
