Yep. Butt against the wall until they understand. Granted, when I have my way, I have them doing it out in the field. I am slacking this year. Ugh.
When you ask, if thy pick it up, stop and praise. Don't try to hold it. Just getting he picking up movement is enough at first. A few more tries later hold it for a few seconds and put it down. Extend the time holding it over the next few days/weeks until you can pick it out, tap the foot, rub all over the leg while he foot is up, move the foot around.
Always end your sessions with walking around and asking for each foot. Foot manners are extremely important. Your farrier will thank you.
Also, it is much easier if you have someone else holding him. Not HOLDING him, just standing at his head keeping him from biting your butt etc. that way you can work without having to worry about him.
