So since Thunder has been boarded (3 weeks now), he is starting to develop some habits that I don't know if they are bad or what, but don't know how to fix it.
He is pawing the heck out of the ground! If he is standing to be groomed....he paws practically the whole time. Same in the arena... anytime we are working, he is pawing...usually as soon as we stop. I was told its a sign he is bored, but even when we change it up, or he has his 'free time' he just stands there and paws!
He's also getting very lippy. I've noticed that his mouth isnt as soft as it used to be...it's like is muzzle is one big strong muscle. He doesn't have a soft nose like some of the other horses, but it's prob because it's smaller :). His lip is so strong! He is constantly grabbing at stuff with it lol.
I don't know exactly what they do with him at the boarding facility, but I have noticed he is growing up a little more, so maybe this is just him going through baby stages. Any advice is helpful thanks :)
