Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. Your advice has made dealing with him a lot more manageable.
I've had this guy for 5 yrs, since he was a new born. He's never acted like this before. I have him hook trained and he responds well to the tap. The behavior I am seeing is hugely different than anything before.
This year he went off feed for 3 months, longer than usual. He also looked leaner afterwards. I am guessing he is hungrier than usual and therefore having a stronger feeding response.
He also just went up in food size to large rabbits(10lbs). I was hoping to find ways of supplementing his diet with food that is easier to access.
You've given me a lot of information that helps ease my concerns and move forward in working with him.
