In that case take a whip! Some horses you do need one, haha. Good for the rooster (I'll take the horse misbehaving any day if I have to deal with a mad rooster lol).

This is how I did my yearling. And there's a difference between me desensitizing her with a plastic bag and me scaring the **** out of her with it on purpose. ;)
Ooo didn't think about a plastic bag! May try that!

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

lol the rooster cracks me up. They have a big coon dog i have feed too he's on the other side of the filly's pen and rooster can wander threw that whole area and after i fed the coon dog the rooster just stood there looking at the dog like 'what are you eating?' it was so funny!

We turned our yearling back out with the mares this summer. She thought it would be a GREAT idea to beat up on the kids pony. She thought she was tough. Biting, kicking, striking. She was giving the pony the works. Dad was too far away to do anything so he just yelled at her and hoped it would catch her attention. WELL, his yell caught the attention of a different horse, and a rather dominant broodmare at that. She was across the field when she saw what the yearling was doing and FLEW down the pasture to give that filly a whooping. She chased that filly all over the field, through the barn, and up into the upper field. The yearling hasn't touched the pony since.

I agree with the plastic bag thing. Be AGGRESSIVE about it. Chase that little snot off you. If you happen to make contact with her, she was too close.

Update!

The lounge whip is success. She knows to stay back now! I dont touch her with it just hold it. The only time i touched her with it is when she was in front of where the food is stored. I think she's learning a little respect or at least I hope she is.
