Some very good valid points from both sides there and thankyou all for your replys thinking about it from one oit mentioed here it is not ill mannered he's the sweetest softy of a lad,.... its he has a lack of repect for my space he will stand over me in his stable door area is the common place almost walks over me and is very easily distracted he's rather nosey !!! And it just concerns me how firm and how much pressure I have to give him and he doesnt seem to be learning from it ... I think your all right I just got to make sure am doing the levels of pressure correctly and look for even suttler signs of movement but like aid he leans against . ... this is going to take some time I just hope he begin to understand and things can become more pleasent . :)

I disagree. I think it's true boredom.

We have a gelding who is truly wonderful - but way too laid back for day to day activities. However put him on cattle and he is amazing.

Boiling down so everyone can understand - my BIL was not a good student. Not dumb, just didn't care for school. Once he went to college and started working in auto shop - straight A's.
