I have seen a horse with those tooth rings and they are horrid. The man held the horses mouth open so I could see, and he bumped one of the metal rings, and the poor horse jumped from pain. I would never do that to my horse.

Thanks for the tips. Those teeth rings sound scary!! I think we are going to try the electric fencing and the rabbit wire. Ill let you know how it goes!

Wow those sound horrible.
Good luck!! The muzzle is a good idea.

Thought some people would be interested in reading on those rings
It's quite cruel in my opinion

Yeah...they look pretty cruel. :(

I'm sure it is cruel, yes, but some cribbers are really quite horrid, and I think putting those in as a last resort is less 'cruel' then letting the horse colic and die.
But that's just me.

I disagree. I think it would be better to let them crib and if they die, it is still more humane than those torture rings.

If you run electric hotwire, and do the other things I mentioned, usually you can prevent them from cribbing without doing anything drastic. .

My horse is a cribbing addict. He is the worst cribber you will ever meet. His teeth are almost gone also, even tho we have a collar on him and he can't suck in he will stand there for hours trying to crib. He is so bad that as soon as you take the collar off he will try to push you away and get to anything he can put his teeth on.

Are you putting the collar on tight enough? I know it looks horrible; I feel bad for having to use one on my 22 yr old gelding, but from experience, if you don't put it on tight enough, it won't work.
