Cribbing & Colic?
I have a TB gelding who is a very mild cribber. The only time I see him cribbing is when he's tied for grooming or tacking up or sometimes when he's in the pasture, as he's usually eating grass. I put a cribbing collar on him when he's tied, and I was thinking about putting it on him while he's in the pasture, too, but I'm kinda nervous about leaving it on his neck while he's turned out.
I was just wondering if cribbing can cause colic? If so, are there more ways I could keep him from cribbing? If you have any products or remedies in mind that I could make at home, that would be great :) And also, he doesn't necessarily "crib", he's just one of those horses that places his top front teeth on a post or stall door, arches his neck, sucks air in, and makes an odd sound while doing so. He doesn't chew the wood, though. I just don't want him to get colic.
