Cross-tie help!

So I just bought a 10 y/o gelding. Very quiet typically. I unfortunately don't know much of his history though. We currently seem to be having some issues with cross-ties though. He refuses to stand still. Constantly turning his butt to his left side, and last time I was out he basically fell because he refused to stand still while I picked his hooves (we did it eventually but it was a bit of a mission. My BO has given me advice to move his feet back everytime he moves. I've been trying that but it seems to actually make him more agitated. Has anyone had similar issues? Anyone have any good suggestions? Our relationship is new and I want to get it started out right too.

If you just purchased him, do you think that he could just be nervous with a new home and people, different routine, and possibly a new environment if such is the case? It can take time for most horses to settle in and adjust to a new family and so on. As you mentioned, without knowing history it's hard to say what the cause could be.
