He cribbed when you gave him a treat, rode him, and he cribbed after each meal. We started treating his ulcers but the habit didn't go away, so I'm thinking its a permanent thing. Although, I've added TractGard to his SmartPak and we are waiting to see if it works. He currently wears the Miracle Collar and it has helped! He no longer hangs around the barn so he has quick access to crib. He goes all the way out with herd and spends all day grazing.
    It's likely a permanent thing. With the ulcers treated and a low stress lifestyle it should become less frequent, but I've never heard of a cribber being "cured"
