oats can certainly make a horse hot, as can this time of year. There are two horses on the farm that absolutely CANNOT have any oats, an appy and a appy cross, they go from being total sweethearts to being bratty handfuls on half a scoop of whole oats.
Green horses test. They do really bad things(bucking a rider off, rearing, etc) 99% of the time because of lack of respect or out of fear.
That said, he looks much better :) I would try a food that's not as high 'octane' as oats and see if that makes a difference.
