Biting The Lead Rope???
Okay, so my boy is 29 months and no stranger to being tied to a post and groomed before the day starts, but all of a sudden he has this notion that he can bite the lead rope! He stands for about 30 seconds before he starts going crazy trying to get the lead rope in his mouth, he bites down on it hard, then drops it and goes for it again. I've tried giving him some firm jabs to his shoulder to get his attention and make him stop or light jerks of the lead to get it away from his mouth, but he just gets more determined to get it! What's going on and what can I do?
