Horse eats car??

Rowdy seems to have a taste for cars!! He has already done $200 worth of damage to my car. It's all cosmetic so I didn't worry about it but now he has begun to try to eat the truck of the guy i pasture him with . How can I get him to stop? I'm worried if he does damage to his truck he will want me to pay to fix it and kick us out!!

How is he getting to the vehicles? Can you just park them farther from the fence line?

Im not sure if it would work for horses so u might want to see who else responds first. But with my dogs when they start munching things they shouldn't i cover it in curry powder or make a paste and cover it that way. Then when they go to much on it they end up burning their mouths and then it isn't fun anymore so they stop. Im not sure if it would work for horses tho. But good luck!

Snapping a whip in Rowdy's direction will make him move.

I have snapped one at him but he just waits till no one is around then trots back over. He starts by sniffing, then licking then bitting!!
