Re: cribbing - what about chewing?
I get really good results with Halt Cribbing Compound. Comes in brown or
clear; I prefer brown. Though brown looks ugly on white fences it enables
you to observe with satisfaction that there are no fresh chews in the
treated areas. I apply with a small sponge brush and wear surgical gloves
'cause it doesn't wash off. A gallon lasts for years when used for spot
chews. The label says you can use it in a paint sprayer. If I had new wood
I would spray everything for an overall brown-stain look instead of white
