Beau is an unregistered Thoroughbred born in 2003. He came to Equine Advocates in 2008, along with his sire, Clive, and another Thoroughbred, Marty, after their former owner was charged with animal cruelty and neglect. Beau is a chronic cribber, most likely due to his poor treatment and confinement by that owner. Cribbing is a neurotic behavior which involves a horse grasping a solid object, such as the stall door or fence rail, with its teeth, then arching its neck and contracting the lower neck muscles to retract the larynx. This behavior can lead to health problems if left unchecked. Because of this behavior, Beau now wears a cribbing collar. Despite his physical and emotional baggage, he is very happy at the sanctuary and very attached to his girlfriend, Lorna. The two reside together in a pasture aptly named “Lovers Lane.”
