Sounds like he just likes lots of attention. We have a just 4 Paint filly that had been handled a lot since she was foaled and if you go out with a brush, she will do the same thing. She will follow you and stand next to you waiting to be brushed. She doesn't ignore her herd, however..if they run off, she will, too. I don't think it hurts anything. When it's time for attention, we give it; when it's time for chores, we just let her follow around if she wants.
P.s. She never really gets in our space, though...just will patiently wait for attention a few feet away.
