    Hi, I was wondering if anyone has wrapped something like chicken wire or rabbit hutch type wire around their wood fences to protect from horses chewing. If you have and it worked, do you wrap it around each plank individually or just wrap it around the whole fence around bottom to top. What do...

    So I use a Pelham on my gelding that LOVES to chew his bit, and the shanks on them, I have read somewhere that there have been instances that the loose ring on the shank has gotten caught on the incisors. The article said that if you use a lip strap it keeps the horse from chewing the shank...

    We just got an OTTB in December, so we really haven't had her long yet. I noticed when we first put her in her stall, the next day, she had chewed quite a bit out of the stall. We thought it was a cribbing thing, but my understanding is that means they suck air when they do such things. She is...

She then lowered her head a few inches, making it easier for me to rub her forehead, and then... she started to lick and chew...

I ride him in a french link korsteel hunter dee when I ride english and a tom thumb when I ride western. When he chews the bit, it is like he is in another world...

    Hi, I was concerned about this foal who boards at my barn. He does not belong to me. He will be a year old some time next month (May). He chews on the wood A LOT. I had my camera with me the other day and decided to video tape him. When I watched it, it looked like he was actually eating the...

    My horse is obsessed with getting his tounge over top of the bit instead to under it. His old owners didn't ride him with a flash, so we added one with his bridle and that sort of fixed the problem. When you first but on the bridle he starts fitteling with the bit, once you put the flash on he...
