My yearling is biting me!!!
When we first got him at about 7 monthes old, my colt NEVER bit me, he wouldn't even take food from our hands.
i was trying to get him to eat treats from me by giving treats to all the other horses around him and then eating carrots myself then after, giving them to a horse so he could see it was alright to eat them.
now he'll eat anything i hand him. or what i DON'T hand him, today i was working with him and he bit me about 3 times!!!!
he wasn't even angry about anything. i was leading him around and he just nipped me on my arm...
is he teething and wants to get his mouth on EVERYTHING?
or is he nipping because he is just learning to use his mouth on things.
what should i do???
You can tell a gelding, you can ask a mare, but you must discuss it with a stallion.
