Pixie is a retired Shetland pony who is 24 years old and lives out all year round. In the summer Pixie is often bothered by the flies, and due to her age she has very few teeth so hard feed and supplements are not easy for her to consume. Providing Horslyx Garlic Balancer in the field for her to lick on an ad lib basis means she receives a broad spectrum of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to maintain in good health, along with garlic to help deter insects.
Hamish is a champion Fell pony who is shown in hand all year round. He has to maintain a fairly low calorie diet to keep a healthy weight and thrives on his diet of Horslyx Garlic Balancer, chaff, ad lib hay and grazing. He is stabled at night in the winter and during the day in the summer to protect his coat for the show ring. His owner finds 5kg Horslyx Garlic keeps him occupied and helps him repel insects without the need for copious quantities of repellents which can leave a sticky residue on his coat – not good for the show ring. Judges always comment on his gleaming appearance.
