The prior is when he becomes very rude, kicks, rears, pins ears, etc. the latter, all he can think of is getting back to his buddies, spooks at everything, snorts, and just untrustworthy.
I was dealing withbthe prior mode for a while until we did some lunge work, and I had to get at him with the whip for kicking out. Well, that fixed his problem of diverting me. So now he has settled into being nervous
For the love of me, nothing I do can get his attention. The lights are on, but no one is home. He moves his feet, side passes, backs and everything, but does so absentmindedly. I get lots of licking and chewing, but still no focus.
He is extremely impatient. I tied him for ten minutes post ground work and all he did was paw. I fear tying him and leaving because he can undo the knot.
My instructor said he is going to work him some time next week because of this problem, so that might help, but I can't figure out what to do with him.
