Here are the two vandals aka Pokey and Gilly! (see them trying to hide behind their destruction?)
Pokey started it because Gilly didn't chew before Pokey-Termite came along now they both chew everything they can lay their teeth too. (click to make bigger) you can see the end of the trellis, I haven't even looked at the other side. Gilly chews on the big stuff and Pokey will stick his nose through the lattice and chew it!
Someone told me that they need minerals? Well I feed them Omega Horse Shine that has flax and a lot of vitamins and minerals in it and have since before Pokey even showed up here and he is eating it too. They can't be bored, they have 5 acres of pasture, trees, hills and valleys to play in and are only in the barn when they are eating....btw Pokey is chewing the beams in the barn too!
Close up of the vandalism on post (big spot is dirt on window OMG a dirty window!)
Soooo my question to you is.....do your horses chew on things and what do you do about it? Is it something else they are lacking in their diets or are they turning into wood gnawing termits?????
