    Palomino Gelding : Possible Buy

    Nice Palomino Ranch Horse

    I am emailing the seller and he has told me of one downfall. Cribbing...

    I think he is nice looking horse. Just be sure a cribber is something you can deal with. I personally have never owned one but if I found one I really liked I would deal with it.Good luck:)

    Honestly, cribbing would have to be one of the easiest vices to deal with.
    My horse does it and we have this creamy gel stuff (supposedly it tastes bad to them, but isn't bad for them!) that we put on the box where we tie him up so he doesn't crib.
    It is made for horses by the way! I wouldn't use anything that wasn't made for horses.

    Good luck.

    I bought my old Tennessee Walker even though he is a terrible cribber. He was just a great horse. Still is except for his permanent fetlock lameness. The only drawbacks for us were= if you plan on boarding some places will not take cribbers, some trainers will not take cribbers either. We ended up putting one of those nutcracker collars on him. It looks awful and is kind of embarassing but he does not crib if it is tight enough. He does not seem to even notice it. When he has it on he does not destroy all the fence and is able to be out in a huge pasture, so I think the trade off is worth it for him. Being in a large pasture did not make him stop cribbing by the way.

    The seller did say he was put out to pasture as a yearling, I believe, and has been cribbing ever since. I just don't want any health issues...

    He looks nice :) The cribbing thing can probably be controlled with either bad tasting spray/paste for a minor cribber or a collar for more extreme cribber. My horse only cribs in the stall or in a small paddock, and he never does it when he has a collor on or when he is in a large pasture.

    So, I would try him out even though he does crib. Though you may want to dig into soundness, because some horses crib if they are in pain (it's useually due to boredom or just by habit though)

    I like the looks of the palomino (at least from what I can tell from the 1 pic) and he sounds nice. There was no pic of the paint and I have never heard of most of his pedigree so I can't really say anything about him.

    Palomino is 8 yo, and obviously has more experience under saddle (for 2nd one they are honest saying he's green). I'd go with palomino (unless 2nd one is very, very nice).

    Cribbing is not the best vise in world: my neighbors barn and fence are all chewed after she got TB cribber last year. The collar obviously doesn't help - every time I see him he's cribbing.
