For the most part he acts great. He was gelded back in the Fall. Then he gets this bug up his butt and wants to act out. I hope this is fairly normal testing/misbehaving young horse behavior but I have not been around young horses much and want to be sure.
Most of the time he will lead on a loose lead and no problem.
Sometimes he will try to turn his butt to me and kick.
I will snap the lead to correct him and get a higher hold on the leadrope.
He rushes for feed and if you aren't quick enough to suit him, he may turn to kick.
If you are in the pasture with him and the other two horses (9 year old mare and 16 year old gelding) and push him away, he may snap at you and one time has acted like he was going to come at me.
Ok having typed it out, it doesn't seem so great. Any suggestions?
A lot of my corrections involve making him back up or move away.
