Helping Your Cribber to Call It Quits
Cribbing is the bane of most barn owner’s existence. It’s so common that almost every horse person knows a horse that cribs. And it can lead to a barn full of destroyed doors, fencing, and other horizontal surfaces.
Cribbing is when a horse grasps an object, often a barn door or water bucket, with his incisors as he arches his neck and pulls back while inhaling air. People will often hear the horse grunt as he cribs. Windsuckers do the same move and produce the same noise but without grabbing onto an object.
