Horslyx Mint Balancer is a palatable, nutrient rich lick containing vitamins, minerals and trace elements to balance the deficiencies in forage and grazing with peppermint oil for a cool refreshing flavour. The flavour of real peppermint oil is loved by many horses, making it the ideal choice for fussy equines.
We have range of extra uses for horslyx mint licks let us know what you think and if they extra tips have helped you.
- Add water and leave over night. The lick turns into a minty yummy gloop if you are a horse. Dip your bit in this gloop to help a young horse want to take the bit.
- Add water again and use the gloop this time to help with worming. Dunk you finger in the gloop and get the horse happy with your finger going in the side of the mouth. Then leave the cap on and dunk the wormer in gloop and pop into mouth. We leave the cap on so they get use something different in their mouth and mask the smell. 3rd step cap off dunk in gloop, chuck it in the mouth and inject the wormer. The most important stage is to put it back into the horses mouth to reaffirm its a positive experience.
- To enjoy the mint flavour the horse needs to lick, which means they need to relax their jaw. We don’t use them for bribery but small burts to help the horse relax the muscles is always a bonus.
