Hey everyone, I just had a question about my yearling. Usually he is the sweetest horse, and has the best attitude, but lately when I grain him, he will lay his ears back at me and get that ornery look in his eyes, and when I stand by him when he's eating, he gets all pissy. Any suggestions about this?? The weather has really changed here and it's gotten cold, so I dunno if maybe that's a factor? Any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Emily. I posted on this a few days ago, but I see it didn't really post.

I wonder if you stood in front of him and his food for a minute, until he behaved, might help? You might have to halter him or have help, of course, at least with the hay.

I would take a bucket (not a feed pan) with some grain in it and not let him have any, until you are ready. I have done this with my horses when they get a little pushy.

Case in point: lately, my docile, sweet mare has changed her behavior some, becoming more dominate. I've been letting her take a bite of grain out of the bucket lately, because it is so cold out, before I put it in her pan.

So no more premature bites for her! LOL. Anyway, hope it helps.
