Thanks to every one for the helpful tips there going to be really useful Shropshirerosie
we have had some people try to help but he can see the pigs at all so just panics and everyone has differnt oppinions and ways of doing things at the moment its ok case im not frightend of him but as im on study leave and finnished my exams I am at home all the time mum doesnt know what she going to do when I go back to school next year. themacpack
I would like to get over the issue of him having no respect of personal space and I think it has somthing to do with the fact he wasnt brought up in a herd so never learnt and weaves and stall walks around his stable without even noticing people are there ,but it sadly doesnt stop us having to walk past a huge barn of pig everyday to get him in and out of his field. mtngrl7500
luckily were ok past them riding after I spend an hour of sitting on bucks, rears, running backwards, forward, side to side and trying to spin its just on the ground its so easy for him to just land on top of you :s
I want to do join up with him to get him trusting me before starting on properly training him to be polite which I have been doing as he's not as silly when he's tied up. His previous owner used to use a chiffney to turn him out in but were now using the headcollar with the leadrope wraped around his nose causing the pressure and realise affect.
Sorry if I've offended anyone havent ment to.
