Ok heres the deal.. My thoroughbred windsucks.. Fair enough most thoroughbreds are prone to windsuck but Barney does it ALL THE TIME!! He's done it since before we got him and we've tried almost everything to get him to stop.. like, EVERYTHING!! We've put crib-stop etc. on the posts but he just got used to the taste, we tried putting duct tape (you know, they grey stuff? They're supposed to dislike the taste) but he just chewed through it and we nailed ice cream container lids to the top of the posts so he couldn't get to them but he just pulled them off!! He's persistant I tells ya!! The owner before us said she tried the collar but it had to be so tight it wore patches of hair off his neck
I suggested putting carpet or rubber over the posts and rails but the carpet may cause respitory problems and the rubber will be very pricey (His paddock is 3 1/2 acres, plus stock yards with 2 seperate yards, ramp etc.) he's not loosing condition and still eats, drinks, runs around etc.. He even windsucked in the stables!! And they're made out of metal!!
Please help, we're getting desperate!!
