Windsucking

I ended up having to get Alli a windsuck collar on her owner's orders, but Al is clever and has learn't if she does it at a less acute angle, the collar doesn't have as much affect. I don't want to keep tightening it coz its obviously not helping her much. Are there any other ways of getting her out of this habit?
I have also noticed she doesn't do it when she is tied up any more and being groomed ect. But after she has had a feed, she does it with a passion! Could the feed be giving her a problem?
Any answers much appreciated!!!

Some collars work better then others. Which one do you have?

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

You'll likely have to keep trying different types until you find the one that works. They aren't one size fits all, unfortunately.

My bosses dressage horse windsucks, and has from a foal, and she also found that she had to try different collars to get a good fit. Another thing that helps is, if she's boxed at all, there's this stuff we have called "Cribbox" that we put on her stable. It's basically this horrible smelling brown goo that no animal in it's right mind would put it's nose near :P
