OK, you don't like the idea of 'clicker training'. So you'll need to think of another way of teaching/reinforcing 'good' manners.

I think it's worth considering WHY you feed it & what healthier alternatives may be better. Just because you've always done it doesn't mean to say it's a good idea. Just because you haven't seen obvious health probs yet(tho I'd say cribbing is pretty obvious) doesn't mean they're not there or won't happen. Many eat junk food all the time without getting diabetes or have smoked for years without cancer... just IMO it's best to avoid unhealthy choices when possible though.

You said the cribbing virtually stopped when he was getting probiotics. This tells me that it is extremely likely to be due to ulcers & diet, and that he stopped for a while, a good sign that the physical probs haven't been going on for too long/it hasn't yet become an obsessive compulsive habit for him to do in absence of pain. If for no other reason than that, I'd avoid the junk & high starch feed.
