Horses Chewing Wood
[Return to Topics]

I've seen a few posts that mentioned horses chewing the wood in the stalls and elsewhere. It's mainly because they are bored and don't have anything else to do, but there's a way to stop it. Go to to a place that sells drywall supplies like Home Depot and get the metal corner bead. It's shaped in a 90 degree angle and is what sheetrock installers use for outside corners. Just nail the corner bead to the top edge of the wood in the stall/barn your problems are solved.

We used to use Cayenne Pepper for our horses we had in stalls. Would mix it up with some water and paint it on the rails. Sure would knock the fire out of the cribbing. Cayenne also works great to break egg-sucking dogs. Get an egg, poke out the bottom and top, blow out part of the yolk and fill with Cayenne pepper slurry. Cures that habit real quick!

Better yet.... Get yourself a bucket of creosote(sp?) or pine tar and paint the rail/ post with it. Problem gone.....
