Choke

Recommended Posts

Just wondered, if a horse had worn a miracle/crib collar for a long period of time, would then taking it off be a reason for choke at all?

Cookies for all reading :)

My old horse Fantacy had episodes of choke 5-6 times between 28-29 years of age. He had worn a crib collar for most of his life until i bought him at 24. He had barely any teeth and would crib and windsuck with a miracle collar on.

I dont believe the cribbing collar has anything to do with yours or my horses episodes of choke. Fantacy would choke when he tried to crib and eat at the same time. We learned that if we left his stall door open to the pasture that if he choked he would as we called it "walk it off" in a matter of minutes.

It didnt matter the feed (we tried multiple senior feeds) tried covering all the cribbing surfaces in his stall with metal, nothing detured him, metal services he still cribbed and wind sucked on.

Have you talked to your vet?
