Anything wrong with my horse or is he just silly?

Not sure where to post this, so I will just post it here. My gelding Jasper will sway his head back and forth continuously usually before he eats. Well, tonight I got Annie out to ride and I noticed Jasper was swaying his head over the gate and holding up one of his back legs pretty high. At first I thought maybe he hurt his leg but then he switched legs doing the same thing but just holding up the opposite leg. And he was still just swaying his head back in forth. He's always done the head swaying before feed time, but tonight was the first time he has held up his legs. He will also do it while we're riding.

I don't think there is anything wrong with him. But what do you guys think?

Sounds like weaving, its a anxious/ boredom behavior. Google it and you will find loads of info.
