Feed buckets for cribbers who are pigs in their stalls
My horse is not only a cribber, he's a total pig in his stall -- poops everywhere, stall walks, throws his grain all over the place, etc. He can't be fed from a regular feed tub as he cribs on it and pulls them off the wall, so we were feeding him from a rubber pan on the ground. Unfortunately, he also ends up dragging it around the stall and pooping in it.
The stall cleaner/feeder is fed up, and so I need to find another solution. Right now I'm trying to tide him over by feeding him from a flat back bucket with Cribox smeared on the edges, but it's only a matter of time before he ribs that off the wall, too.
I was thinking of trying one of the heavy-duty rubber feed tubs as it flexes a bit and has more give. However, I'm wondering if I need to find a snap that will hold up better than the double-ended ones, as those seem to break in no time. Even the brass ones don't hold up to his ridiculous habit.
Any suggestions? Should I try using carabiners instead of snaps? ;)
