While we have become increasingly aware of the special needs of horses with sensitivities to starch and sugar, there remains a large population of our performance horses that can benefit from moderate inclusion of NSC (non-structural carbohydrates: starch and sugar) in the diet.

Cribbing, compulsive equine behaviour, compulsive horse behaviour, EQyss Crib-Guard

Cribbing is a compulsive behaviour in which the horse places his upper incisors on a hard surface such as fence board or stall door, flexes his neck, pulls against the object, and sucks in air.
