I just had a tought, he was rescued as a yearling or so from a breeder who quit feeding all the horses and left them on his farm. He was actually taken off the property by neighbors along with a few others. Is it possible that he rembers being starved? I've read that they will paw at grain buckets because of it. Just a thought.....

I would check the saddle fit too, from the picture (and it could just be me) it looks like it doesn't completely fit

What if he is just feeling the cooler weather? I expect more snot from horses in the cooler fall and winter. One gelding I used to ride threw bucks after every jump in the winter. He was so frisky we had to run him for 10 - 20 minutes before riding (or I would be riding that rodeo) and he would still throw a hop in after a some jumps in the winter. In the summer time? Pft you could barely get him into the trot and not without working your legs off.
