Have a question for anyone out there that might be reading.
My Mr. Gentle Gemini has not been so gentle the past couple days.
I have been trying to work with him and my mare on their herdy habit!
My mare did good for the most part. Only got a little nervous around the truck and when she saw Gem.
I started on Wednesday of this week with the same way I started with her.
Except I could not get him to move an inch! I tried with the bit in and with just the halter and lead.
I even had a convincer and he still wouldn't move.
He instead decided to throw his head, pin his ears and try to bite me!
I kept trying, didn't give up. Got frustrated and left him alone for a bit. Went back to him and he started the same thing. I put the mare inside and he was finally convinced to move!
By this time I was so tired, we worked for a few minutes more and I turned him loose.
I went out again yesterday with some determination and he did the same thing but much worse.
He chased my mare everywhere, he bucked and kicked at her. She turned around and kicked him! Bugger deserved it after picking on her!
I thought we should end it for the day and try again today. Oh boy! I either really made him mad or he is hurting somewhere and I can't see it.
I went back out to see if he would at least let me near him to see if I could feel any sore spots. Couldn't feel any but right behind his right front leg makes him pin his ears and try to bite. He got ahold of my coat this time!! Good thing I have a baggy carhart, otherwise he would have had my arm too!
So my question(s) is this. Is this a sign that he's angry with me? Is he in pain? What is it? Is he thinking I am trying to take him away from her? Please give advice.
