My yearling filly was becoming extremely food aggressive, she was running us over trying to get to the feed bucket. This is not acceptable. We were doing what we thought was right, shooing her away, carrying a rope with us and reprimanding her. The other day at feeing time she was trying to run me over again, I forgot my rope and was trying to shoo her away, she turned to the side of me and I thought she was going to her feeding spot but instead she bucked up and kicked out with both feet. Luckily only one hoof hit me, but it hit me square in the stomach. It landed me in the ER for 4 hours. And she is in "jail" at my uncles, (he is a professional trainer), DH and I know our limitations. She should have gone 2 weeks ago but we got lazy.
Even if your guy was "playing" you should be more dominate in the herd. Always stay safe, believe me a yearlings kick in the stomach really hurts!!
