    Anyway, I think you want a quick fix, a band aid, because him cribbing " annoys the CRAP out of you", so, again, try the real sheepskin to cover the straps of the cribbing collar.
    Uhhh I am tired of explaining things.

    He was just started being blanketed last year, my stories about him shivering are from two years ago.

    I don't want a quick fix, he has been cribbing for three years, why would I just now be wanting a quick fix?

    If he has been cribbing that long, it is highly unlikely that he will ever stop. I know that's not what you want to hear, but at this point, it's a habit that he gets enjoyment from.

    Oh I know he wont stop! I just wanted to find something to put onto his stall so he will lessen his cribbing so he dosent ruin his stall!

    LET ME MAKE SOMETHING CLEAR......

    Sorry for "shouting" I just wanted everybody to see it if they are scrolling down..


    There is this perfect height that no matter how tight his collar is he can still crib, hence 1 of the reasons he no longer wears it, because his stall is at at the perfect height.

    Sorry I forgot to bring that up until now!



    I bought some BitterLicks and he wont touch it. So please drop the topic.

    It's a quick fix, because it doesn't solve the problem. Whereas letting him live like a horse will make him stop because he has no reason.
    If you "band-aid" now, sooner or later he will crib outside too. Then what?

    Maybe pasture board is not right for you, for him it would be, lol. But, there are other possibilities. He can't go looking. You do.

    If he does not crib when out, leave him out. He does not like being stalled.
    It is unnatural to stall them. They get very bad habits.
    If you insist on stalling him, good luck. Get him a jolly ball , or similar product to keep him occupied, but it may not work if he is truly unhappy about being stalled.

    You can never solve cribbing. I am looking for a way for him not to destroy the BO's stall. Its not right for him to be on pasture board, I would love for him to be outside, but its not for him.

    You have systematically ruled out every suggestion made to you as impossible for one reason or the other. At this point, it seems your only REAL concern is the stall being destroyed. So, my last suggestion would be, replace the stall boards as he destroys them since nothing else works.

    I only ruled them out because I already thought/tried them. If you go back to my original post, I was asking of yucky tasting stuff to putt on his stall. That is all I wanted.

    You could try rubbing bars of soap or something like that, but this is a deeply ingrained vice that the horse will not give up, short of turning him out 24.7. Which you can't do. There is no magic pill or oil or collar. At this stage I guess you just have to deal with it.
