old OTTB cribbing when he's sore

So I have a 19 year old OTTB that cribs when his arthritis is bothering him. Nothing serious, he just gets crackly joints and then he'll start cribbing.

I'm looking for suggestions on supplements to help his joints and help him be more comfortable. He's a pasture supervisor, and gets light riding once in a while, no hard work for this old man :) he's on Front Runner Senior, Omega Bran and beet pulp with a bit of oats and some rice bran oil

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated :)

Can't you bute him on those days?

I'd rather not bute him, as he doesn't show signs of pain.
And I want to treat the cause rather then hide the issue.

Well you can bute without knocking out the pain completely.
