Thanks for the input all.
I posted late last night and failed to include some relevant details- yes, I had the vet visit twice, I wouldn’t diagnose a horse; soft tissue damage, no fractures ( X-ray and manual exams).
Horse loving guy goes to some length about the authenticity of his injury and not minimizing the injury; I have complete empathy for him and have sustained many similar injuries myself (combat sports); my reason for posting here was twofold; to ask if his reaction might be, in part, a new behavior separate from the physical aspect; and for ideas on reapproaching the halter issue.
His treatment course has been bite and an antibiotic for a discolored discharge from his sinus.
Thanks again.

“Bute “ rather (his treatment course).

Practice using just the rope around his neck but if you think the problem is fear of having something on his face and not soreness you could still put the halter on him but not attach the lead to it after you have him caught. Ouch ..

When you look out of your eyes, at nature happening out there, you’re looking at you. That’s the real you.
