Question Stressy Horse

I bought a Welsh Cob section D a week ago, I bought him back to the yard and he seemed to settle in very quickly. He came from a busy yard, so I knew that he would take alittle time to settle in as the yard im on is fairly quiet! I have been bringing him in with one of his field friends so's not to stress him out. Over the last week each night I have done him the routine has been slightly different (as I work full time and have a small child!) He is fine when I have him out and am seeing to him but once I put him into his stable he gets very stressed out. Almost to the point of box walking and has knocked his water over a few times. This doesn't happen every time I put him into his stable but more often than not!
Does anyone have any suggestions? I have been trying to ignore him so's not to feed his insecurities!
