Thanks, guys. I took him out this morning and he was nervous at first but I took my whip. I walked fast and usually he would like to throw in some bucks when I walk fast or pull away so he can graze. Anyway, this time, when he tried to graze I jerked on his leadrope or tapped him on the nose with the whip and he stopped but he kept trying to find moments to snatch a few mouthfuls of grass but I didnt let him. I took him on the gravel road and it was windy and he usually tried to do something stupid in situations like this. I gave him a whack on the chest when he tried to go faster He didnt get to do anything dumb this time. So am I doing this right?
I wanted to let the dogs loose tonite and take him for a walk and see how he behaves then. After i've got the dog stuff staight I want to get him used to kids so I'll get my brothers out and let them pet him and stuff so he gets used to it. What do you think? I really want my brothers to be able to ride him, too.
PS another problem is, when I bring the hay he gets really pushy and I don't know what to do about it. What SHOULD I do?
