Yes, I've been working him as often as possible, but I'm a full time student, and I also teach riding lessons, so sometimes it's tough to get him worked everyday.
I don't let him get away with being pushy with me - he gets reprimanded each time he violates my space - but he doesn't seem to get it. He just sort of looks at you like, "What? Why'd you do that? I was trying to see what you're doing over there," and then it's like he forgets he was ever scolded.
I'm hoping with more time he'll grow out of it. I'm considering a goat, now that I know they're indestrucable, ha ha.
We'll see. I'm guessing once he grows up a bit he'll chill out a bit.
And in regards to conditioning him, I'm hoping that initially it will tire him out, but in the long run he'll build more muscle and be more willing to defend himself? Hopefully.
ETA: Putting him in the pasture that is separate, but can see everyone... makes him NUTS. Not even kidding. It makes him incredibly difficult to handle because he's so upset.
