I have a new OTTB (6 yrs old). He has been at my stables since Saturday. I bought him underweight, his previous owner was not feeding him enough. Yesterday I turned him out (across the street from the barn, barely in sight of the barn) before dinner time, and the whole time he stared, paced and looked for the feed truck as they drove around. Would not pay attention to me, would not listen to any commands..... what do you think? He was almost unmanageable.
He is almost 17HH and huge, so if it is a behavior problem I have got to nip it in the bud so he isnt dangerous or anything.
He's been off track for 2 years and was trained hunter/jumper during that time.
