I totally agree, you need to get your horse to behave and reward him when he is finally quiet :)

*just realized that this is happening In a stall.. So get after him by making loud noises the second he acts up (shake rocks in a can, scream like a hooligan, growl, whatever you want) and do not feed him until he stands still. Once he gets the point, increase the time that he must stand patiently until he gets his reward (food)
