1. How do I not only show dominance over him, but the entire herd, so that they don't harass him when I bring him in and send him back out.
2. How should I separate him from the herd when I want to bring him in so that they do not follow, but HE will?
3.I switched him from sweet feed to pellets shortly after I bought him because of his hot attitude. I thought that he had come along so well that I could try a regular feed again(as this is all my new barn offers)I am wondering if this is contributing to his hautiness?
4.The barn does not have a roundpen or arena where I can lunge him. Does anyone else have to deal with these sorts of circumstances and do you all have any suggestions on how to work with an uppity horse where the space is limited and seems to be crowded with other horses?
Sorry this is so long and thank you to anyone who takes the time to read it. I feel like I have come such a long way with this horse, but my confidence is being quickly deflated and I am wondering if this is something we can overcome or if I made a huge mistake by changing barns.
