I started feeding him very slowly, mostly hay to start and increased grain gradually. Within a few days, I was able to catch & halter him without too much trouble, (Yes, treats were involved) and turned him out with my 2 old mares, half sister's by the same stallion. Discovered he adored being groomed, so we did lots of that. What he DIDN'T like, and would NOT tolerate, was anyone handling his feet. Worked and worked with him until I could pick his feet up, then had a farrier out. It was a disaster. After several months, he would allow his front feet to be trimmed, but not his hind feet. We went thru several farrier's (several of whom told me he was nothing but an outlaw and I should either get rid of him or have him put down), before I found one that would work with him, but again, could usually only get the front done. He offered to take him in for training, stating "That horse just needs to be thrown, tied down and shown who's boss". Yeah, like that was gonna happen!
