He was being a bully. He gets his round bale to graze on then his feed once in the morning and once at night.He came from a place that turned him out in 80 acres to this but that place was 2 hours from me .I searched long and hard for a place before deciding on this one and my horse has jumped leaps and bounds in weight, energy so forth since moving to this barn. I have been through hell with him because he is not an easy keeper and no one seems to care when they are under him care.This is why he was 2 hours from me I took him back to the place I bought him from to board to get him back to normal again and since moving to this place he has done even better in that area.Just having an issue with this now.Its never ending with him I swear
    Okay, it will take time for him to "forget" that habit. Best bet would be keeping him off the mesh for now. I'd get plastic stakes, a roll of electric tape and a small battery powered fence charger and build a fence within the fence, about chest high. He'll probably still paw, but at least can't get hooked in the mesh. SHOULD he get hung in the tape, it will break. If he's stalled also, get him some kind of slowfeeder which needs to be kept full at all times. If it's a net, hang it high enough so he can't get his feet anywhere near. I'd get one of thos bags with webbing, they keep their shape when empty. With time his grumpiness about the bale will stop.
