    *Didnt read posts

    OP I've always wondered what putting electric fence over the top rail would do? I imagine one zip from the electic would make them back off- And if its to super cheap rope stuff I also could assume it'd be cheaper that replacing posts all the time. I've also thought about this while they're in stall but it would be harder/unsafe.

    I ran across Quitt while researching cribbing products. It's a supplement to stop wood chewing (not cribbing, sadly) and has a guarantee that it will stop wood chewing within 7 days.

    I'd also recommend re-evaluating your horses' diets, as well. Using a tool like FeedXL.com can show you very quickly if they're deficient in any key minerals or have an improper balance of calcium/phosphorous, zinc/copper, etc.

    I have had good luck with taking a bar of deoderant soap(Irish Spring) and rubbing it up and down on the favorite chew spots. Soap in the mouth is not a good taste and is harmless and cheap.
