Thank you....

It has been years.....

I am just ready to get mares again.

The odd thing about Sunny cribbing was he came back from the Quarterrama cribbing.

He was fine when he left for Canada.

He won his halter class......no one knows what happened.

Maybe he was stalled by a cribber????

Ripper,

That is terrible, but I think you need to cut yourself some slack. While there is a connection between cribbing and colic, I am doubtful that a turned out retired horse who probably only cribbed briefly when confined did enough damage to cause the colic.

FWIW, I don't believe horses "learn" to crib from other horses. I think it's much more likely your gelding started to crib at that show from the strees and tension of the show environment and being stalled 24/7.

Years and years ago, we had a very fancy conformation prospect sent to us for breaking and training. When put up in a stall for half the day, she immediately started to crib out of boredom. This was *huge*; potentially destroying a lot of her value and her show career. We had to hot wire all the surfaces in her stall. I hated it. If she had been mine, I would have turned her out and brought her in to work and turned her back out. But she was supposed a high dollar, hot housed show horse, and cribbing wasn't an option, and neither was all day turn out.

The hot wire worked. But I still hated it.

Thanks.....

We know he had colic when I put him down.

They did a lot of tests.

I could never have turned him out and showed him.

He was a red roan and faded very easy.

I am wondering if they are mistaking wood chewing with cribbing?
