I thought that if other horses see a windsuker they will start doing it too?

and yes swallowing a lot of air effects the digestive tract - Even in humans.

I just wanted to add that my friend has a wind sucker. My friends horse will suck wind using her pasture mate. My friend had a consultation from a professional trainer...she said that if the horse wasn't being kept in the stall to much then it was pretty much something you cant do anything about. She said you can try and keep the horse busy all day and it might help...but not even a cribbing collar would help in the long run. If the wind sucking bothers you or you are worried about the horses health...I would pass on it.

Unhappy windsucking??

O.k!!! my daughter bought this horse at a sale he is 10 when I first heard him it just sounded like a big groan I was brushing him and he was relaxed and he did it! BUT today when I was brushing him and he was relaxed he made a gurgeling and then like a burp or groan sound right after, sort of like us having to burp and it works its way up and we can hear it and then we burp it out!
Could this be windsucking as well!?! or burping??? do horses even do that?
don't tell me I lucked out and am lucky enough to have got another lemon?
