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
