Nadia has turned into a beaver these past few weeks. Or an interior decorator. Just look at the new window she made in the wood of her stall.
I got out the "official" stuff to coat the wood but, believe me, it just doesn't work!
A long time ago, we used creosote on wood to keep the horses from chewing on it. But, that's been outlawed as bad for the ecology. They used to treat railroad ties with creosote and look how long they last! Anyway, after trying several times to use this No Crib horse product with no luck, I reverted to my old standby- used motor oil. Shhhh, don't tell, I don't want the ecology geeks after me but I have found that painting wood with used motor oil is miraculous for keeping the critters from eating the wood. Really, it's a way to recycle that old motor oil, right??
