cribbing

  1. Horse Training
    My 5 year old is rubbing his top front teeth on the gate for his corral. I'm not worried about the gate. It is solid metal. I just don't want him to wear down his teeth. I'm trying to spread out his food and exercise during the day as much as I can while I'm working from home. Pellets in...

    Just wondering what you guys recommend for supplements and minerals to give your horses. I'm going to be giving some to my horses, just trying to figure out which kinds would be the best to get. For my older horse, I'm looking for something to help her gain a bit more weight and that'll help...

    I havea 12 yr old Mare barrel horse that has had a terrible cribbing habit since she competed as a reining horse in her younger years. The Vet came and said that she needs to put on more weight. She is getting 2 qts of SafeChoice Senior, 1 scoop of Soy, 2 scoops of equipride, 1 large scoop of...

    I have a 3 year old Standardbred mare, who cribs flat out! She is wearing a traditional cribbing collar which will stop her, sometimes. But tonight, for the 2nd time in two months I had to tighten it. I don't know if its stretching or if shes getting stronger... The minute the collar comes off...

    **We are going to have our vet check our mare, so please do not say get a vet. We are just looking for experiences or someone who may know a thing or two so we have more info when the vet comes** We have a 6 year Quarter horse mare who started cribbing when she was 3 or 4. We keep them stalled...

    My horse has been cribbing/windsucking for the last 10 years at least. He's a 25 year old QH gelding. He's just now starting to lose weight from his bad habit. He has 24//7 turnout (in and out access to the stall), 24/7 access to 2 round bales of hay, and has buddies. I've tried the Miracle...

    We have a cribber and have tried everything we can think of: miracle collar, hot wire, toys, ointment on the fence… It doesn't matter what we do. She cribs on her trailer, her feeder, and her 1 1/2 acre pasture. Her teeth are starting to show the wear of constant cribbing. We have checked her...

    My friend's horse is really bad about cribbing and we want to get him to stop but we aren't sure what the best way is. How should we get him to quit doing this? What has worked for you in the past? Help would be greatly appreciated :)

    I'm curious to hear if any of you have experiences with different brands of muzzles for horses that crib. My horse is at a farm where he is required to wear his muzzle 24/7, including while eating his hay (but not his grain). It's very difficult for him to eat through standard grazing muzzles...

    Not sure if this belongs here but... My horse is out in a field and began eating the bark off trees, googled it, not a problem. He is now RIPPING chunks of wood from his shed and eating them. I am not only worried about him getting hurt from the wood/chemicals in the wood, but I am worried...

    I'm new to the forum and not exactly sure where it makes the most sense to post this! Any thoughts on the below situation would be much appreciated! I recently moved my horse to a new farm, which, for all intents and purposes, seemed like (and in many ways is) a safe, well-organized, clean and...

    Another issue with the quarter horse! He's been cribbing all his life, and nothing stops him. •Collars - weaken the crib, but he still does it. •24/7 Turnout - cribs on trees, fences, anything. •Spray - who are we kidding? does nothing. •Muzzles - cribs through the muzzle. •Surgery -...

    Hi everyone, My horse cribs, and it's making her teeth very square and her tummy bloated. I was wondering what I can do to stop her. I was wondering if there is anything out there that will stop her, on a more permanent basis. If I left a cribbing collar on her for a while, would she...

    I was on another forum/website, and had someone say their horse cribs because it was weaned too early. They also said it was the same as when a child is weaned from breast milk and starts sucking it's thumb. Weaning could cause cribbing if the horse was left in a stall and all alone. But just...

    Hello everyone, this is the first time I have used the horse forum. My girlfriend tells me about it all the time. anyway. I am looking for the best cribbing strap. I have a mare that cribs occasionally. I also want to know about cribbing -- I hear there are new reports out on the subject.

    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...

    If you have a cribbing horse, at what age did he/she start? Thanks,
