I think his attention should always be on you when you're leading him, as it can lead to him getting into your space from getting too excited. I would have him move his feet any time his attention came off me. It could help with his buddy sour issues by making him think it's not okay to act that way. At least while you're around, that is. But, that's just me. :) I've got a high strung pony who will pop right quick out of fear and a learning yearling, so I don't let them get away with much haha. That being said, they're buddy sour. =.= Henny is actually better about it than Bubba. I can lead them away and they'll be fine, but the one left behind gets worked up a bit. Irritates the crud out of me when they call to the other who went away.
