My irish draft 2 year old gelding wren is such a softy. I have done some work with him well actually it was for 5 minues and only done once with asking him to come to me, i stood infront of him waggling the rope gently and moving my legs up and down looking like a right prat but i was making it up as i was going along really, and wiggling my finger towards me, i was just playing really but it worked, so i took his head collar off and did it again and he walked right up to me, now everytime i go in the field and i walk up to him and give him a stroke for a while i then walk off and he follows me every where, away from the herd, across the field, back he stops when i stop, i believe we have something very special. Ive only had him for 3 months! He was very head shy and nervous and no good with rugs but ive fixed that already. With his head collar and rug i let him sniff it hen rug it all over him slowly then started to rustle it a bit and make noise with it now he is fine with everything. He does still stick his head right up when trying to get a head collar on but I'm working with that, he's 15hh now and im 5'4 tall so hopefully we'll sort that before he gets much taller.
Anyway I thought I'd just share that with you
