My warm blood chews on wood or her corner feeder at home but she doesn’t do it away from home, why does she do it at home but not away from home?

The wood at home may be tasty, maybe try spraying something that she won’t like the taste of like chillie spray to stop her from eating it or maybe put a salt or mineral lick in her stable as she may be trying to get minerals from the wood?
Hello 🙂

For me she can be bored at home so she occupied herself by chewing (if she lives in a stall) but when she is away from home she is quite stressed by the new environment so she doesn't think about chewing.
