es ist ein anderer Ausdruck für "cribbing", beide heißen auf Deutsch "Koppen".

Beispiel:
Cribbing or wind-sucking collar. The "Nutcracker" collar is an adjustable strap with a lightweight aluminium 'nutcracker'. It is placed around a horse's neck to help prevent windsucking by stopping the flexing of the neck muscles whenever it tries to suck in air. Other varieties are also available, too.
