I've just added horse number 3 to my stables, he arrived on the weekend. He is two years old and has very basic and limited training, so I have a lot of work (and fun) ahead of me. When he is in his stable (which has a WIWO yard), and in particular, when he is eating, and I come near him in the breezeway, he pins his ears back, lunges his head forwards and then swings his rump towards me. He can't actually get me (solid jarrah kick boards - phew), but I went to go in last night and take his water bucket out to refill it and he did the same, cornering me, and that could have been messy. I'm thinking he is just defending his meal - but any advice on how to desensitise him to me entering the stable would be much appreciated. So far I have made sure I don't back off if he threatens, so he doesn't gain anything from being agressive, is that the right approach? Tell him off? Soothe him and say it's OK? Inch by inch from the door? Aside from this - he is very friendly - calls out to me in the paddock if I am walking past and comes for cuddles.
