As for in the stable make sure he does not invade your space. If you invite him in that's fine but otherwise make him keep his distance and respect your space.
ok thanks for that. I am thinking any handling/grooming I do from now is going to be outside of the stable hopefully this behaviour will stop, I have been very strict on people feeding him from the hand to avoid this and it still happend
