    Cribbing Help?

    Hello! My horse is a cribber . He wore a cribbing collar on for years, but recently it rubbed him raw and his poll was swollen. I took it off and about 2 weeks later it went down. So I put some anti-cribbing stuff on his stall, but now he is okay with it and will crib even if it is on it. He wont sit there for hours on end and crib, but he does it enough to annoy the CRAP out of me. Do you guys have any home remedies that I can put on his stall to make it taste terrible? It can't stain it either, I board my horse, and I would rather not stain their stalls! I read something about vasline and cyanne pepper? Anybody tried that? THANKS!

    Have you tried a different style of collar? I know a horse that the owner has collars in different styles so she can change them out and prevent sores.

    I have tried three. I would rather not put on him, not becuase I think they are cruel, its just at my barn they wont take it on and off when he goes outside, and his skin is really sensitive and when he sweats under it, it does rub him raw.

    The cribbing collar from Weaver Leather. They have sheepskin covers for it.

    I just ordered some BitterLicks, has a 99.5% success rate, and a money back guarantee so I figured I would give it a try.

    Can you get REAL sheepskin? I think that would do the trick. That synthetic stuff never works for long. If it works at all.
    Does he crib outside, too, or only when stalled. Does he stand for more than an hour or two without anything to chew on, other than his home interior?
    If so, get a slowfeeder net and put his hay in there. Keeps him occupied.

    He does not crib outside, his pasture is 70 acers so there is plenty for him to do. He gets a TON of hay, and is still eating it in the morning when they go to turn him out. We are not allowed to hay slowfeeder nets, nor would I ask them to put the hay in there they have 49 horses to take care of and Ben is already high matince! Lol.

    So he's cribbing inside when anticipating to go out.
    No nasty tasting stuff needed.....leave him out.
