Or doesn't want to work.
My lazy qh lets me brush her and mess with her any time of the day, but the moment I turn to pick the halter she flies to the other end of the field and looks at me from there. Does it mean she doesn't respect me? No. She's just smart enough to try to avoid the work if possible. I can always walk there and just put a halter on, which is annoying, but you have to deal with it.
Lopez, do you come to the paddock to just play with him? Brush him? Or take him out straight to work every time you go there? You want it to be pleasant for him to be around you. I mean, try to bring little bit of grain for while and don't take him out as he comes to you, but just brush him, or pet him, or just give grain and leave him alone.
