As Winter Approaches…
As winter approaches all equestrians know that what that brings, dark nights, cold mornings, the inevitable mud and more time spent inside for our equines. Regardless of which option of hay, haylage or short chop hay replacer is chosen the reduction of forage quality over summer grazing means that vitamins, minerals and trace elements are sorely lacking. To counteract these deficiencies, providing one of the Horslyx balancers which has the added bonus of also being a boredom breaker is a great solution. All Horslyx need to be licked, which takes time and patience, perf
ect for horses that are stabled for long periods of time and can help reduce stress and boredom. Not only that, but horses only produce saliva while they are biting, chewing or licking and saliva is an excellent natural buffer and lubricant within the gastrointestinal tract. This leads to better digestion, less stress and a happier, healthier horse.
