I knew this person who had a 2 year old "stud" colt and they bragged about him all the time and how 'uncontrolable' he was. Now he liked to nip becuase he was young of course but he wasn't aggressive. And his bloodlines were not great he has never shown and she kept him a stallion. He had no purpose. He just stood in a stall all day long. He wasn't used for breeding either. She just wanted to brag that she had a stallion. Anyway, Across the street one day, people were plowing a corn feild. And everytime the really loud tractor would come by, he would spook just a little (he was in his stall of course) he would just jump out of the way not tramadicly but was very frightend of this. So she decided to take him out and put him in a round pen for a while.(which was closer to the tractor by the way) And she opened the gate put a stud chain over his nose and jerked it extreamly hard and pulled him out. When he tossed his head from pain, she jerked harder and put him back in the stall saying he was too 'high strung' to go out and tied him up in his stall with the chain still on and when he niped at her (being mouthy like a young horse would) She smaked his face hard with her hand. Now who is out of control?
