Get a cribbing collar? Not sure about any other solutions on that.

Beautiful horse though :)

If he’s doing it in his stall then just leave it on him when he’s in the stall. If he’s doing it outside on the fence or something, I believe they make a stain for wood that discourages chewing. Guess it tastes bad so he shouldn’t grab it to crib.

burnt motor oil works just as equally well, and costs less for a good qauntity of it....we quit with cribbing collars mostly because my Arabian mare has figured out how to slip them off the other horses...(Shes too smart for her own good) so we brush the burnt motor oil on the wood it stops problems...though if they are cribbing try a mineral supplement sometimes they crib out of boredom others they are ’missing’ something but they dont know what it is and thus crib to try and get that missing item

Really? That’s to bad. I’ve had horses since I was young, and my family has one for sale. His registered name is Lukes Painted Black. We call him Jack, and he is a tobiano black-and-white paint/quarter horse. He is 15 hands, and a sweetie. We live in Milford, Nebraska.
