    He will also chew on the lead rope while being tied..(((Any advice for that?))))
    Horses I have raised before never had any issues like I have with this guy ppl that had him before I think spoiled him and treated him as a big dog, so yea he's kinda grown spoiled in his own ways "hence reason for the dvd's"
    Annnnnnnnnnd BITING
    I have to keep an eye on him constantly to catch him before he tries to do it.

    Don't get me wrong I am doing the ground work with him its just these small things that perplex me..I thought that with the ground work all these little things would work themselves out?

    We do the long line walk trot canter and back ups...
    Bending, and moving hind end away from pressure..
    I am having to desensitize him for spookiness...
    He really has come a long way in the months that I have had him. He wouldnt let the farrier work on him the first time I had him out to get his feet worked on and just this last time the farrier was out he thanked me four times!!! Because the horse did so well!!!
    He use to not stand still for grooming or while being tied - Now he does somewhat~

    That may just be who he is, very animated. Keep two lead ropes attached to his halter in case he chews through one? Then he will not feel as if he can ever get away by doing it and give up? My old TB was very mouthy and had attitude. Just had to always stay one step ahead of him. He was like a clown with ADHD. One of my current mares is very mouthy as far as puting everything in her mouth, but just plays, nothing serious and no attitude.

    Smart thinking Oldhorseldy!! I would have never thought to do that...
    Next time he has to stand tied for a given amount I will do that thank you!

    My boy has the TB in his blood lines must be their nature.

    Yea like your TB I think he does it to passify himself...But its annoying while my nieces horse stands there tied very well mannered..
    She told me to put hot sauce on the rope - but I just can't bring myself to do that.

    I think he did it to just annoy the human....because if you would tie him out by himself he would just stand there! He was definitely an animated creature....very smart and full of himself. Never a dull moment with him.:)
