my mare licks steel fence panels, and cribs.
this is not that big of a deal so much when its summer or something, but now that its winter I am starting to wonder.
Maybe this is just a silly concept, but im worried she's going to get her tongue stuck to the panels. They are steel panels. I already had a little bit of wet hands and went to open the gate chain and it stuck to my fingers, I would just hate for her tongue to stick to the fence.
**When we got her she also had a problem with cribbing, and still does.
I already know alot of you will probably have a hay day ripping my butt about it, so please spare me for I already know.
She doesnt do it on wood, only on the steel fence panels. She doesnt do it as much as when we first got her, because everytime im out there I make her knock it off.
She does it mainly while she is eating, she eats some, goes to the fence, licks it and then pulls while sucking in the air through her mouth, then goes back to eating some and does this the whole time. She even ripped a steel bar off one of the fences from doing it so hard and so often.
Besides a cribbing collar, any suggestions?
