My baby has those same issues! She paws for attention though. I'll be grooming her and she will be totally fine, but as soon as I walk away and give my attention to something else, she starts pawing! Like Kyani's horse, as soon as you look at her she stops and looks all innocent! She just started doing it so I ignore if for now, but we'll see.

As for the mouthyness...chances are he's teething or curious. Like spirithorse said don't punish him, just don't let it get out of hand :)

Well, I'll give you some actual advice. I tie my horse up. He has a chain stuck to his stall wall and after I ride, he get's tied. At big shows our routine is thus: tie for 30 mins, lunge for 30 mins, ride for 30 mins.

He doesn't come off until he is standing relaxed. He doesn't really cause problems, I just do it because it improves his overall manner.

Sorry tim I can see it helping an adult horse who is just being impatient but not a yearling.

Yea Vida I understand your concern, but it's practices like that that tend to make the biggest impression on young horses.
