Ok so at feeding time the geldings fight. They will bite kick and ive seen them rear before.(like this)
ive had it. They dont even have food and their fighting. I was told that Summit had a problem with wanting to be at the food first, but i just thought running, not fighting. They are fine once they have food its only before they have it. He did make sonny rear and like go sideways at the same time,and i almost of trampled. I cant separate them either. Lately they have just been kicking out at each other. They dont have shoes though. Is there anything i can do without separating them? im kinda done...theres been no serious injury's but yea....

well, at feeding time, you could put one in a separate pasture where he's still in sight of the other horses and feed him there and the other with Lucy. And then release him when they're done. I hope this helps!

Only those who risk going too far, can possibly find, how far they can go.

That's natural for horses. They are seeing who is going to be boss, and they will sometimes fight just to make sure the leader is still the leader. Mare's do the same thing, they nibble-bite, each other until one of them flinches, etc.... You can't really stop the gelding's. That is completely natural in horses, it's nothing to be worried about.

You need to put lots of small piles of feed/flakes around so they're out of reach of each other. Most the time, as long as they all have some they leave each other alone. You can't expect them to eat from the same pile/spot without fighting.

Without separating them, the only thing you can do is put multiple small bits of food around the paddock

You can't really stop them from fighting but like everyone said either separate them or put out multiple piles. Maybe take a lunge whip with you for your own safety just as a warning so they give you space.

If you're in any physical danger, make it so you can feed without going in, and feed whoever's instagating first.
