Are your horses spending more time in the barn, out of the elements?
While shelter is a good thing for obvious reasons, the more time your horse spends in confined spaces, the more likely they are to crib, or chew on surfaces around them.
In rare cases, cribbing is thought to be related to dietary deficiencies. Most cases of cribbing however, are due to boredom or the stress of being locked in a confined space for long periods of time. Wood surfaces are generally the most common for horses to chew on, but a bored horse will chew on just about anything they can get their teeth around.
Not only is cribbing destructive to your barn and other surfaces, but cribbing can be related to certain types of colic, if not kept under control.
It is a good idea to keep an anti-cribbing spray on hand anytime you are keeping your horses indoors. For this purpose, we offer our SU-PER® Red Hot Spray. It is a combination of soaps and cayenne pepper extract, which can be applied directly to surfaces where the horse may be interested in chewing.
SU-PER® Red Hot Spray is non-toxic and non-staining, and sticks to most any surface. It can be applied to almost anything the horse may want to chew on, such as bandages, lead ropes, the outside of feed buckets, and many other surfaces.
If you plan on keeping your horse indoors this winter, be sure to have some SU-PER® Red Hot Spray ready just in case!
