A dominant type I suppose. As with the others, I would consider health problems & bad training/handling(eg perhaps he's 'giving you the finger' & you need to be firm while being fair & positive), but wouldn't stress over it. I might work on teaching an 'ears forward' cue with 'clicker training' principles if it really bothered me.

This concerns me. It could also be at the root of the grumpy looks. But whether or not, as it sounds like he has ulcers & it sounds like he mightn't yet be at the point of no return for the obsessive compulsive behaviour of 'cribbing', which is also definitely best to treat/avoid causes asap. Firstly I'd put him back on the probiotics ASAP if that helped so much. Then I'd carefully evaluate his diet & lifestyle & change to healthier food, environment & practices where necessary. Then I'd call the vet.
