My colt has kicking... issues. He doesn't ever try to kick at me or his dam... he doesn't ever try to kick other people, he doesn't even raise a leg and threaten anymore... but he tries his hardest to kick any other horse (besides his dam) who comes near him when I'm out there messing with him.
I noticed it the other day... I was standing in the pasture petting him and my mare and when the youngest filly we have came up wanting to be petted, Dakota turned around so that he was still facing me and pinned his ears at the filly then kicked the crud out of her and ran her off... then he was back to his sweet, normal self. Every time the filly came near, he'd kick at her.
He's the same way with strange horses, or when I'm on his back and any horse besides his dam comes up to him.
When we first got the filly, Dakota showed some jealousy issues aroynd her... wanting to run her off and all, but we didn't really think nothing of it because he was used to being the 'baby' and we all figured it was just him trying to figure out his place in the herd.
What can I do to make this kicking stop?
