ADVICE SOUGHT FOR RUG RIPPER

From: ALDER30

Comments

my horse has a sweet nature but has started terrorising the others,he's a rug rippa!.All he seems to want to do is play he's not rough but aims always for other horses rugs, i've had to replace 2 peoples rugs and repair others,He has a rug bib which is fitted correctly but manages to still get hold of other horses rugs! My only options are to keep him in.turn him out on his own or purchase a mussel,I'm reluctant to do these as he's a "herd" horse and it would kill him to be separated from his buddies and I'm reluctant to stop his natural grazing by using a green guard or mussel.He's never nasty only playful and often gets a good kicking for his sins. If anyone has any suggestions i would be grateful.
