Horses Don’t Need to Chew Fences


Editor’s Note: This article has been sourced from a content shared by Riva’s Remedies via their newsletter.


Chewing fences is not the same as eating wood or cribbing. Chewing fences is a way that horses try to communicate with their human caretakers. What might a fence chewer be trying to communicate? Here are the most common: boredom, loneliness, lack of companionship or a meaningful relationship, dissatisfaction with diet, infrequent feedings, dental problems or teething, lack of exercise, anxiety, and/or symptoms of pain or discomfort. I have owned many horses over many years and I have never had one tooth mark on any one of my fence rails no matter how small or large the area. Learn to listen to your horses!
