The problem often seen with rescues is the owner feeling so sorry for them opts not to properly train them. When the horse starts to paw at feeding time hold a 4' stick, or lunge whip in front of you horizontally and toward the horse and move it away from the feed. Then allow it to return. You may have to do this three or four times as that's about how many times it takes for the horse to make the connection. If it turns rump like it will kick, turn into a raging monster waving that stick in the air. Scare it good. Then allow it to eat. Leave the horse alone while it's eating, at least until this is resolved. What has likely happened is that the horse just happened to paw at feeding time and someone hustled to feed it so it would stop pawing. Horse had an Aha moment and figured that's what works.

Mine paw at their buckets occasionally... that's when they have the buckets. Sometimes they get told off, scared a little to stop that action, so they get what I mean, but mainly it is because I feed soaked pellets from 20 l buckets, and sometimes when they eat the food sticks together at the bottom of the bucket, and the kick the bucket, turn it on the side and pick it up again to unstick the feed Harmless bucket kicking

twitch is not scared at all of a whip even if you lightly pop him he won't budge not even flailing arms scares him he trusts me so fully he isn't scared at all the chain seems to work as you can see in the video i feed dry feed that is easy to clean out of the bucket i also have problems lounging him cause he isn't scared of the whip not even if there is a bag on it

sorry he isn't even scared of flailing arms he just walks up to me and puts his head to me and expects to be comforted and loved even when i move him off me he comes rite back he doesn't spook at anything i have tried and i've even poped him a time or two to make him move in the round pen with no luck he gets his exercise by hand driving i'm working on getting him to drive in the round pen but i have to stay behind him to get him to go he dosen't kick or anything he had started kicking when eating but that quickly got fixed and dosen't kick in the pasture at me at all

He does not have to be scared of the whip or flailing arms - he has to respect them. It all depends on what your intention is when you are using your arms, or the extension - the whip.
Mine are not scared of the whip or anything normally, but when I decide I need them to move out of my way or back up I almost just have to stare at them with the right thought in my head. It depends on your energy levels. If you inside are not determined to make him back up, but more like "it would be nice if you backed now, but I won't smack you if you don't" then he won't as he can read that.

he will back up easy but we have round pen issues he dosent yeild to a whip crop or rope he just keeps seeking comfort he is kinda weird energy when im around he is moderate lazy and dosent want to do much but when he dosent know im there he is romping and playing how can i teach him to move off from me wirh the items he dosent yeild to or respect? even the dreaded bag of doom dosent make him even turn to look at it

when i do my ground driving i click my toung and he moves off well but if i come up beside him like in the center of the round pen he stops and comes to me
