Exclamation Horse paws at the ground??

My horse just starts pawing at the ground and I don't know why? If any ideas please comment
I also left her tied by my back porch and was going in for a drink she started climbing up after me? Whats up with that?

When is she pawing - when tied, under saddle, both ----????
I am not sure what is so confusing about her trying to follow you *shrugs*

he's Fixin to charge you. Pawing is a horse's way of "challenging you to a duel":)

Pawing is a sign of impatience.

Her pawing is most likely an impatience thing if it is when she is tied.
As for her following you, I also don't really get why you are confused?

She does it under saddle and without saddle and while tied she has also done it with a 4 year old boy on her she isn't aggressive at all.
I don't get why she would try to walk up the stairs when she hates loading in a trailer

She is bored and lacking in manners.

She is trying to walk up stairs but doesn't like trailers because trailers are dark closed in spaces, your porch is probably more open.

Our paint does the same thing she does it she is tied, saddled, or waiting for food if im the the barn and taking to long. I sit there with the food in front of her, but out of reach and yell no everytime she paws. She needs to learn some patience I guess.

Yeah my horse paws while I'm mixing her feed, it's an impatient thing. I yell at her when I hear it scraping on the concrete, so now her foot just sort of hovers in the air.

I agree with AlexS

Impatience mixed with bad manner, I do not tolerate my horse doing that.
