I know this is off subject but i am hoping someone can help.
I have a 13yr old AQHA gelding that has apparently become dangerous according the people where i board him. I have never seen this horse do anything dangerous! He has never bite or kicked at me, or done anything to make me think he is dangerous. Could it be how they are handling him? He calms down as so as i get to the barn.
Any help or suggestions?
Thanks
Megan

Megan,
It could be any number of things.
What is it that he's doing that they consider dangerous?
Is he difficult in his stall?
Or when feeding?
Does he chase down other horses while turned out?
Does he chase down people who walk in the pasture?
Is he aggressive towards other horses in any other scenario?

It started because he went throught the fence. He test the fence daily and if it is not on he is out. He is also our "babysitter" for our foal. The then kicked one of our mares, My thinking is that he was trying to protect his baby. So they brought him in to his stall (we use tie stalls because we have drafts) and he reared up and struck out. I have NEVER seen this horse come of the ground.
I have been reading up on ulcers, we treated him for them early this summer. I think it is the fact that they changes things when I don't do chores. And change upsets his ulcers. Plus if he can't see his baby he get noisey.
Does that help?
Thanks!

Has there been a change in staff were you board him and how long have you used this establishment. It could very well be how he is handled when you aren't there. Did he behave this way when his ulcers first flared up if not they probably arent the problem. Either way the behavior isn't exceptable.
