My good show gelding was a cribber.
His jowl strap was enough to stop him.
The day I stopped showing I came home, pulled off his blanket and told Sunny to go enjoy being a hores....in the pasture.
He was 10 and had NEVER been lose.
He loved that summer, I put him in at night.
When winter came he missed a few days going outside.
I heard him cribbing but, did not put his jowl strap back on him.
Sunny died of colic at the age of 11.
He was third at the world show the year before.
I still am sick with guilt.
