Eating the barn!

Wasn't sure where to post this-

My friends' horses are eating their redwood barn! I've done some research and it seems they either are bored (very possible- their work load has deminished), deficient in vitamin/minerals, or the nibbling has just become a habit. They are fed high quality alfalfa/grass hay, and plenty of it....their feed could be rationed better, and more complete though....any ideas of how to stop them, or target the cause?

How old are they and are they stall kept? Mine are all either in a dry lot or pasture with run in's I notice the younger ones would nibble on the wood but I'm pretty sure they have outgrown it. At least I hope so I've also noticed that since we are getting their teeth checked annually its pretty much stopped.
I also give a handful of cracked corn to everyone every day so maybe that's what stopped them
Geesh pretty wishy washy answer whichever it is they don't do it anymore.
