Is there a reason your boss won't allow a collar / strap?

I know some people that smeared soap on surfaces.

What about a cribbing muzzle?
Tried treating for ulcers? I've seen that breaks a couple of the habit.

I used one with my geldings also took two to a show to keep them happy in the stalls they don't like stalls much and loved them my little paint is a cribber and he's out 24/7 right now and he's a ton better being able to run around. I've had horses that love jolly balls. We got some cribbing spray we are going to try once our stalls go up. And they will get hymillain rock salt..

This little guy is out a lot and he spends a lot of time cribbing.oddly, his cribbing is directly related to eating. When he is in the stall and not eating he hangs out like everyone else.glad to hear you had good experiance with ball.

Suggestion: Quitt supplement. Had a mare that chewed the haymow ladder from a 2x4 to half that size and liked even more with chew stop on it. Has not cribbed since.

Was he just a wood chewer, or an actual cribber? I thought about using that for my guy, but went a different route.
