I was dumbfounded today when I went to pick out my Paint geldings left rear. He cowkicked me and sent me sailing. Granted, it was near feeding time (3:30) and he probably wanted to go in his stall and not out on the trail. I was horrified. I love this guy and have been working on developing a relationship of respect and trust. My gut reaction made me pick up a crop and wail on him. This was so scarey and he, clearly, was trying to show dominance. He never used to do this and I don't know why he's started now. I was so disappointed in him. What's going on???
