My gelding is also this way. Before I bought him, his previous owners put him out to pasture and left him there, and then before that he was a racehorse. We're having the dentist come out this week to look at everyone's teeth, and I've set up a consult so I'm looking at the teeth option, even though this has always been a problem. He takes wormers fine, but if I want to stick my fingers in there, or peel his lip up to look at his tattoo (they did this before EVERY race, so I know he knows whats going on) he jerks his head away and won't let me touch him.

Since he gets nippy about treats, I decided to go bitless and he was very nice with it. He picked up on it right away, no fussing about it. He would shove his nose into his hackamore.
