WAY differently, I believe! Often times they are very stubborn and when you pull, they begin to balance themselves on the lead and pull back. Sometimes they pull so hard back that they fall to their sides.... hard. You also need to use an adjustable rope halter, usually the halter and lead are in the same piece of equipment. I found that not leading them until about a month old is good, that way they do not lean on the lead too much and are sturdy enough to have enough balance. However, before the month old, I will tie them up with the halter on in a short-ish lead. Also let them drag the halter with the lead around in the pen.
