I am just after some advice from people who have experience with Stallions, I work at a spelling agistment and stud with mainly broodmares and young TB's and there is also a big TB stallion there, I have been a bit nervous lately to go in and feed him when hes not locked up as he can get a bit full of himself and will sometimes strike out, i dont know if this is being nasty or what it is, but i have to get in the gate (he is normally there right in your space) and when you get in there he shoves his head in the feed bucket and i have to turn my back on him to lock the gate which im not very comfortable doing and i will start to walk away from the gate and past him with the bucket to go over to his little yard and stable to put his feed in the bin and sometimes he will jump around and paw out and stuff and making growly noises, sometimes i cant even get into the gate because he will be running at the fence with his ears pinned back to the horse in the next paddock. I have alot of expererience around horses but no experience with a stallion. What should i do in these situations where he is being a bit full of himself and no manners? ';' He is normally fairly quiet and alot of the time he will just follow me quiety to his feed bin, but others he will just be really silly and buck and rear. I know stallions can be quite unpredictable. And i dont want to provoke him in anyway as he is VERY big and strong and it is quite daunting! I find myself getting down there and sighing with relief if hes locked up! Would love some advice on how i should act around him and getting some more confidence around him!
