Also don't wait for the actual kick before you correct him! Correct the thought of kicking even before the action! When he starts to turn his butt toward you (or your other horses when you are standing nearby) or look over his shoulder like he is going to do it yell, scream, chase, smack with a whip. Make him think that the world is going to end when he even THINKS about kicking when a human is present. It is disrespectful whenever he turns his butt toward you or another person even if he doesn't kick.
I would certainly work on getting him leading well. There is no reason a four month old colt shouldn't know how to lead well, be touched all over, and pick up all four feet.
