Wood chewing- I need new ideas for stopping wood chewers. I've seen the over-the-counter product called "No Chew". Is it really good and effective? Any other ideas? Creosote for some reason is illegal to use here in NJ.
Preventing Nipping- Just a little tip: I read about in one of our horse magazines, but it seems to help. My 2-year-old stallion likes to nip at me on the way to his shed at feeding time. He will back away from the fence on command and stay back just until I turn my back to take the last few steps into his shed. Then the takes a lunge. I read if you just wave your arm, in back without looking at him, he will think it was his own fault that he got hit. So as he came nearer, I flapped my arms behind my back, without looking. He took a step or two back and let me enter the barn. I feel like a duck waddling my tail, but it works!
