they said he jumped thru the stall feed window to get to a mare in season and was boogered up some and they want to sell him cheap.
he is a 5 year old that came off a ranch and was told he was a good using horse.
i get there and no one is around so there is a halter tied on the fence where they have him penned.
i get the halter and he comes right up and sticks his head in and i rub all over him and he is calm as can be.
so i hop on him bareback and thats where things go south.
i'm old and fat so i'm having trouble getting my leg over and he's trying to bite me.
i slid back down and he has his ears penned back and acts like he still wants to bite and pawing some.
there was some other horses across the fence they came over when he was acting up and he really bagan to act like a stud.
the lady that sellling him said he's gentle most times but at times he acts like a stud and she couldn't do anything with him.
she said she has to keep him seperate from the other horses because he picks on the geldings and tries to mount the mares.
when those horses came over to the fence he couldn't be handled.
he had no repect for me what so ever
i figured i could teach him some manners but the more i worked with him the worse he got.
i don't know if he has any hope or not.
