Dragging his head around while cantering??

This ones a head scratcher for me. Lungeing today he went to the left just fine and then went to the right and when I asked him to pick up the canter it looked like he was trying to make a mark in the sand with his nose.lol At first he had a bug on him so I stopped him because it was really bothering him and he likes to lay down and wiggle them off. So I shewed the bug away. I asked him to canter again. Anyways, I did read that appaloosas can get real bored if you keep your routine the same. I'm thinking he was probably trying to be funny like "god this is boring". He didn't keep it there he raised it when I asked him to. I checked him over and he seemed to be fine. Any other ideas?
