You really need to work on who is boss. I understand he is shy which makes it harder but you have to let him know that he is not allowed to be aggressive towards you. It's easy to deal with now, not when he's a 1000 pound animal. I would get a halter on him and get him in a small pen and catch him everyday and work with him. What do you do when you are trying to get a halter on him and his pins his ears?

My friend had a baby who was sassy sassy sassy and they got a pony who was nice and friendly and Lilly turned Chica around. Since Lilly likes people, Chica decided that they were ok too ... a friend who can teach them what it right and wrong can help sometimes too :)

well I havent try agian! It was the Man that I bought him off that put on the halter the first time ( I was there tho )! He put the halter on in a stall (roped him ) then we bushed him all over and he was fine he loved it ! So the man took him out with a luge line and he fliped out ( so did I ) I think Im going to try agian just showing him it and rubbing it on him and so on ! ! I would move him but his still with his mom ! I'll be bring him to my place on the 15 about ! Im not that worry about getting the halter on as I am about him being aggressive and shy ! I have to get him to be ok with people seeing how I have to get him castrated as soon as I can ( I don't want a stud)

Thank you alot for your help

Just go real slow with him, like you said, show him the halter, start on this neck and move toward his head, when he is comfortable w. That then go to his face, start from his muzzle and work up. Just go real slow. He needs to know he can trust you first. I would just start rubbing him all over and brushing and once he is quiet w. All that introduce the halter. Sounds like he was never taught.
Good luck and let us know how it's going.

I would just wait until he is away from his mom, and only deals with you. With horses like this it's sometimes better to leave them by themselves.

I agree to get him away from mom so all of his attention is on you. Get that halter on him asap.
