    if he acutally LIKED other horses that might be something to think about. He's lived out in a pasture setting alone (for all intents and purposes - shared a fence line with the actual herd of horses but was in his own dry lot [desert, no grass]) with hay in front of him most hours of the day and still would crib. Doesn't matter, he's going to do it. *sigh*

I overheard the trainer say that her horse better not be learning how to crib from the pony- mind you, her mare can't even see the pony, so she'd have to learn just by hearing him grunt. When I commented that studies haven't shown any evidence that horses learn to crib from observing other horses do it, she just dismissed it because I have a horse who cribs, and therefore I must be biased. It couldn't possibly be that I have a horse that cribs and therefore have a personal reason to really look into the latest research on causes, prevention and management of cribbers
    ridiculous. Just ridiculous. They do NOT learn it from other horses. Ugh.
