I have a boar that I purchased about 3 months ago for too much money to consider eating. He's a great looking animal but has this nasty habit of wanting to bully me around and even nip me if I'm not looking. Makes working in the area he's in too dangerous to be alone. I do go in with a big stick and use it to rub his back (and knock him over the head!) and he'll stay calm and like it, but never flop over. I really want to train him away from this behavior and am considering a cattle prod, but am not sure this will change his behavior. Also, he is in with a sow that's not in heat, but if she's near me he doesn't like it and when she was in heat, no way would I go in.
