1.5 y/o is a very solid marker. However, at the line he likes to bounce up and down on his front feet. Not moving forward at all. It does not appear to affect his marking ability as far as I can tell. Personally, I don’t like it and am worried it may earn him a mark down of sorts in a hunt test/field trial. I have been told by some that this would not be the case and as long as it is not affecting his marking to leave it alone. Should I point my finger at this? Will he grow out of it? I am also asking for ideas on how to address this, although I am apprehensive about using pressure at the line, as I do not want to create more problems that could negatively affect his marking ability. Other observation is that he only does this when running a field trial setup, (human gunners in field, and me standing next to him), when running a hunt test setup ( sitting on bucket with wingers in the field, he does not do it.) I read this as excitement as he only does it in more exciting setups (birds v bumpers) etc.
