    Find some real sheepskin then.......cut rectangular pieces, length and width of the straps, and sew together or attach Velcro for closure.

    I would not leave an indoor cribber in. We have two that only crib when indoors even with food and treats available. They stay out 24/7 no if ands or buts. Everytimes we stall our welsh he ends up with gastric ulcers. Last time he was only in a stall for four hours and cribbed the whole time wanting back out. So, why put them threw it.

    Well I heard of this in a book somewhere: take a sheepskin rug and sprinkle it with cayenne pepper. When he attempts to crib the pepper will go into his mouth and throat and in some cases the horse will.stop cribbing

    He is a VERY accident prone horse, and is not sure footed at all. My new barn is 70 acers of woods and hills. He lived his whole life either in a stall, or in a 2 acer pasture, so if it wasnt for his cribbing problem, I would keep him inside. I also don't want to look for him everyday on 70 acers. Then the horses that are on pasture board don't get feed, as they have round bales. So Ben has a probtiotic that he has to get everyday, and he would not get it if he was on pasture board.

    If he got 24/7 turnout, he probably wouldn't need the probiotic or the cribbing collar.

    Yes he would, he does not drink alot of what so he is prone to impaction colic. He is also prone to ulcers, the vet wants him on the Probiotic.
