This is my sister's 1 and a half year old stud colt. He's a nightmare to catch and I usually spend an hour or two just to catching him. I've tried to bribe him, I've free lunged him, I've left him alone until he'd come up to me.. I've tried everything I can possibly think of. He only does this when I (or anyone else) has a lead rope and halter with them. He doesn't like to be caught unless it's on his terms. He is in with three geldings (he will be gelded in the fall hopefully) and when they are all caught and taken out, he doesn't care. He's not buddy sour, which is good-ish, but he just doesn't notice them leave or something..
My sister has spent many hours in the arena they are in (not pasture due to one of the geldings foundering..) with this colt and anyone can walk up to him to pet him, so long as there is no halter and lead rope. He's very friendly and all, but his studly manners are kicking in and he is a nightmare to lead half the time. I am tired of chasing this stallion around for two hours just to catch him and he's not even my horse! My sister can't even catch him and neither can my aunt, uncle, or cousin. We need serious help with this colt. He's going to a trainer in the fall so that's nothing to worry about, but it's the catching part that we need to get down on him.
Please help us!
