    You should Faye!!! You'd make a small fortune haha!
    Its ridiculous amounts out here, and don't even get me started on supplements!!

    I used to have my horse on EVERYTHING you could think of, new yard, new regime due to it being livery.. said I could try their way otherwise I'd have to feed up myself due to the amount of stuff I used to put in.. so I thought, heck, these people have been doing this all their lives, I'll give it a go, and not looked back! We have around 30-35 horses, all on oats and barley, only the mares get a supplimentary feed because of foaling!

    My paints all have a lot of energy. But they are all very respectful. Even my stallion will stand next to an in heat mare and behave himself if he's on his lead line or I'm in the saddle... When they are out in the fields, they run and jump and buck like crazy... Sounds like your paint just needs to learn some respect. There is a time and a place for the antics and it's not while on a lead or while you're in the saddle. Its too bad that you're asking for help, but not willing to take anyone's advice. It sounds like the majority think you need a professional trainer... But if you choose not to take anyone's advice- that's your problem. But you're wasting everyone's time by asking for advice that you have no intention on taking.

    Just go hang out with your horse and let him walk all over you. Let us know how that works for you.

    It doesn't matter what you feed him. He's 3. Ever been around a 3 year old human? He's practically a baby... He's a bundle of energy. That's just the way it is, and you can either teach him when is appropriate to be crazy and when its not, or you can ruin him by letting him get away with stuff, or training him improperly because you're not a professional. Good luck either way. I hope for the best for you and your boy.

    It saddens me when people stop learning, or forget how to learn. The quickest and easiest way to learn is to be taught by someone more experienced than you. Getting a trainer doesn't mean you won't be doing the work. Getting lessons doesn't mean that you are an inexperienced child beginner who needs to be led by the hand. Everyone could use a lesson or two or a second opinion now and then.

    My dad has been working with horses for fifty years, and has not stopped learning yet. He is always adapting and adding to his repertoire.

    I have been training foals and weaklings for 12 years now. I think I am pretty darn good right now, judging on the progress of my babies. I still have an enormous amount of work and learning to do. I get better every year, which means there is always room for improvement which also means I had better keep learning.

    If you(meaning anyone) are unable or unwilling to seek out someone more experienced than you to help you with a problem hands on(IMO, the best way to learn) then you are the opposite of what you think you are. If you are too good, or know too much to learn, then no one will ever be able to help you(meaning anyone). The best thing a horse trainer can do is keep his or her mind open to new ideas and ways of learning. You must learn before you can teach.

    Horses can't be trained over the internet. They need experienced handling to learn, as well as we do.
