The first night he was very restless. Instead of lying down, he kept jerking his
halter rope up and down through the ring, and knocking the block about against the
manger till I could not sleep.

This is Beauty, in Sewell's 'Black Beauty', describing the first night of his new work partner in the stable. Could you please tell me what this block may be?
