All the threads you are responding to are really old threads, not currently active. Just FIYI find it best if you dont use halters and just use the collars so they are used to it and just take a day where you can work with them. Take a lead rope or leash and attach it to your collar and just let them walk arou d on it for a minute but dont let them pull you stay in one place so they know how far they can go and then try to take a few steps and try to get them to follow you and when they do take the pressure off. Do this a few times until they know if they walk the pressure comes off. It wont be a quick process but it works. And my reccomendation is dont get them super friendly if they want to be your friend they will jump on you and be a pain in the show ring. But if you have one that is nit as friendly it will be so much easier to show them. Trust me i habe had both kinds and the ones that are scared of you are so much better.
