    Would love some ideas on leg issues!

    Hey everyone!
    I have a 14 year old gelding that I bought about 2months ago, found out that he was treated badly. Anyway, when I brought him home I couldn't catch, touch, or pet him. Once I caught him I could do anything to him except touch his legs.

    I can now pet him when he is loose, catch him, pick up his front feet and run my hand down his hind legs. So today I thought he might be ready to try to pick up his hind leg, apparently not. He let me run my hand down his leg and as soon as I started to pick it up he jerked it away and kicked me. I did not get hurt luckily.

    I would love some suggestions on how to get him better about this. He is not disrespectful, I think he had an old injury that was taken care of buy someone unkind.

    I tried to put a rope in between his hind legs but when I threw it and tried to walk over to pick up the other end he would step over it.
    Thanks for your help!!
