Horse acting jumpy???

I went out with Hondo this morning to groom and ride - though the ride didn't happen afterall, read on. He was acting . . . Jumpy, is the best way to put it. I turned to get the brush and come back to him and he jumped??? I was taking some mud clots out of his main- which I couldn't get completely- and he jumped. I was picking his back right hoof and he jumped when a dog barked. Then he tried to swing it out at me to which I put the blunt endge of the pick on his hip and he settled down so I finished the hoof. I walked him around on lead a bit and his attention was flying. A shadow, the leaves blowing in the wind, his hoof cruching a pine cone, .. whatever. It was so noticable I didn't feel comfortable to take him out on trail today. So I am wondering if maybe he is feeling "off" because of the strange weather 3 days of dark clouds and rain, the changes in his paddock- sand and a new rain shelter, or maybe all the commotion that both of those additions caused. I dunno, just strange.
