He keeps pawing his manger and can get his foot in it and rips it off the wall, have also tried tyres on the floor but he paws them and flips the whole lot.. Any ideas welcome his 15 months and 16.3 Rolling Eyes

I use a manger and don't have any problem. You could try hanging hay nets up instead.

Try the deep Tubtrugs on the floor. They are light to carry, but the horses' get their faces right inside, and pawing, which is a common Shire thing, doesn't tip them up. It works.
Having said that, I have one who just likes pushing all bowls over and eating off the floor. He's always done it, now I just make sure the general area is clean first.

He is stabled 24/7 because that could be why he is being silly - boredom!
