Horse kicks at feeding time

My 10 yr QH gelding, has an issue with kicking the stall wall while waiting for his grain!? I've had him boarded out at two different barns, and the first, no issues. The second, I noticed that their horses became a little naughty during grain time, but he seemed fine. And now I have him home and he pins his ears, kicks the walls, and is just plain bad while waiting for his grain. My other guy just kinda waits. So any suggestions to how I should deal with this? I've had him home for just a couple weeks, so I'd like to nip it in the but! Thanks

You could do one of two things. One, ignore him and only give him his feed when he quits. The other is to whack the stall with a stick or something to get him to quit. Don't hurry up and just give it to him. That only rewards his behavior and he will keep doing it or get worse. He needs to relearn to have patience.

Thats the same problem we have right now. The horses have got the barn help trained now :/ anyways its gotten so bad that we actually put a mild zap collar on two of them. The horse they had before kicked the stall door and they set up a spray thing that shot water at the horse.
