Question about 4r100

I am a new 7.3 owner and this week I have had the truck on sandy roads for the first time. In first gear it doesn't seem to get going good until the truck is at 1200 rpms (no chip). Is this normal or a problem?

Does this happen only on sandy roads or all the time?

If it is fine on pavement, but does the above in sand, I'd think that it's because of the sand.
