My buck, who I am showing at the end of the month, hates being touched. The breeder had some family issues that I won't post on here, but she had to be across the state for two months after he was born. So, when she got back, he was of course a bit wild. He leads OK, not the best, but I can get him around the ring, though he'll be fighting the whole way
But when it is time to set him up, or the judge touch him (not sure if this is normal, but the judge at my previous, and first, show did that) he FREAKS out! Leaps, jumps, rears, kicks, stomps, steps on feet, etc. And that's not good. He just doesn't like to be touched. Anything that will calm him down, and get him used to being touched?
