use a muzzel..or put her in a electric fenced place..she might try to crib on it..but only once

I would not do the surgery...it's risky..and it doesn't always work

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.

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.

cribbing

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.

Do not go where the path may lead-Go instead where there is no path and leave a dusty trail.
