Hey everyone, I already posted this under another board but I thought I would post it here too. 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!

if he were mine....I'd make sure he knows you're in control of the food. Make him back away while you pour it in...and he's not to approach it till you say it's ok. Then, while he's eating, stand beside him...if he offers any attitude, make him back away again until he approaches ears up and ready to listen. Just my thoughts. It worked with a mare I recently had problems with.

I agree with that last post. Start with the backing away from the grain, and maybe socialize him while he is eating, groom him or just stand there and love on him. Keep up with it and you'll see his attitude change. =)

I agree with Diana and Sierra. My 8 month old colt or you can call him yearling is a turd with my husband. Im talking MEAN. With me he is a total gentleman. I rub and brush him everyday morning and night and I make him waite for his grain till I say its ok. His attitude will change when YOU BECOME ALPHA.
