My stallion is good and will stand well for pre breeding clean. I carry a spray bottle. After breeding I go to clean him again (just got warm water setup), and he is really a handfull now kicking and being a brat. Any advice???

It is quite possible that the spraying is annoying him. You will do better to use a cup of water and pour it directly onto his penis which you are holding with your other hand, avoiding splashing onto his back legs. Obviously also be prepared for a negative response if that is how he is behaving these days! If you have him placed against a wall so he cannot move away - and don't restrain him by his penis (it's not a lead line!! ), then if he does kick, simply come unglued at him! You don't need to physically come into contact with him (i.e. hit him), but throwing the bucked of water at him (just the water, not the bucket!!) and shouting at him and becoming "bigger" than him so that it scares him should make him think twice about threatening behaviour in the future.
