Cool ~How To Cure Fence Chewing~

My Thouroughbred gelding used to chew the fence in the yard when he was tied up. He never did it (as far as I am aware) unless he was tied up. This is how I got him to stop.

There's two methods that I tried.
The first is cutting a slit in a pool noodle and putting that over the fence. This worked for my neighbor's mare when she started windsucking. My horse, however, just pulled it off the fence.
The second method I tried, and that worked, was mixing Vaseline with chilly flakes (you can also your pepper) and smearing it all over the top rail. It was a bit messy in the yard for a while, but he stopped chewing the fence within the hour.

Hope this helps

My mare picked up this habit over a year ago in a "full board" barn where they fed almost nothing... I still can't get her to stop, even though she's on free choice coastal and t/a twice a day. I will have to try to chilli flakes and vaseline.... I never thought about that. I've tried motor oil, bitter apple spray, rubbing habanero peppers on it, she just keeps chewin it.

Try liquid dish soap. Paint it on the areas she chews. Be sure you don't use anything with bleach or a bleach alternative - you don't want to poison her! Just plain dish soap.

You could try hanging salt and mineral blocks around the place. Its stopped our new mare from nibbling at her stable
