Its amazing though, how long she will stand next to me, relaxed acting like a 20 yr old horse when I am holding the lead rope. I don't even have to hold the lead rope. I will just throw it around her neck and stand there, or walk off, and she will follow me around the yard, compared to tieing her and she immediatly starts to paw and gets super bored and acts like a little brat. She is always good about standing still when I put weight on her back or the saddle, but she gets bored the instant I turn my body away from her.
Will she ever quit pawing? It's not that destructive, but a lot of people would probably see it as bad manners. And if she does it when tied on concrete it is very loud and annoying.
She is a horse though, that if you do it once, she will remember, so naturally if you dwell on something she gets dull=bored=onery. From what I have learned. So I don't know how to go about this tieing behavior. It's just a boring thing for a horse lol.
