mini pawing!!!!!

I have a 4 month old miniature colt who I wanted for an inside pet...he is wonderful inside but **** that pawing. He will do it when ever where ever. I can be cleaning his room and he will do it. We can be walking around and when we stop he will find something to paw at. He is so far from agressive, thank god! He is very loveable and loves his attention. But it seems that any time that I am not with in 2 feet of himn that he will do it. Fo instance, he is right next to me while I type this up...he will do it all morning until he gets fed. Paws at his bucket while eating. Please I need advice!

Maybe he's bored - can you give him more turnout time?

My horse paw's while she eats,, So that means When she's done eating I have a 3ft hole to cover up....

He's inside? Lol...i find this incredibly funny - I always wanted to do that

As far as the pawing goes, its an impatience sort of what any 'herd leader' would do...make him move enough to where he stands still without pawing...then walk away. If he starts back up, make him move again and repeat.

It sounds like he's got you trained, though :)

Turnout time to expend all of that built up energy would probably help, too. At 4 months, he's probably wanting to get out there and boogie!
