My new gelding has been doing some strange stomping. It is 95% of the time when I am riding, he lifts his back legs high and stomps on the ground. Sometimes he reaches around to bite his lower legs like something itches him. I can't tell what is bothering him, I have checked for anything on his legs, in his feet, etc. His legs seem totally clean. I have never seen quite this type of behavior before. Any thoughts?
The basest horn of his hoof is more musical than the pipe of Hermes.
He's of the color of the nutmeg and of the heart of the ginger.
His neigh is like the bidding of a monarch,
And his countenance enforces homage.
- William Shakespeare
