      Likits are a good solution for stabled horses, but only when in the right toys

      The Likit refills have been designed to go inside one of the Likit toys (such as the Boredom breaker, Holder and Tongue twister)
      They are basically a cylindrical flavoured block with a hole through the centre. The holders come apart and a bar through the centre then slots through this hole.

      The Likits are designed to be hung from the ceiling, away from walls and swinging freely, so that the horse has to work to get the treat.
      This is a brilliant concept, but in my use I have found with my 17'3 horse I have to hang it very high (and he still bumps his head) he can still eat the Likits within a manner of seconds from the holder. He has worked out that by holding the bottom of the holder with his bottom jaw and using his top against the Likit, it cracks and falls off the holder.
      The main problem with him gobbling the treat up in a matter of seconds, is that it is very full of sugar and definitely not healthy. I have managed to find a solution that works a bit better by buying the tongue twister toy, and fitting it with only the smaller Likits, it takes him a lot longer to eat them.

      The Cherry Likit refill is one of my favourite Likit flavours, it smells delightful. I actually tried it myself before giving it to my horse (not recommending this) and it did taste really good, but there was definitely a lot of sugar!
      My boy loves the cherry flavour and gobbles it up pretty quickly.

      For an equestrian product these are fairly cheap, if they last a while they are good value for money. However if eaten in a few seconds they are an expensive and unhealthy treat.

      Buy as a treat

      I have been buying these Likit refills for quite some time now for my horses. I get them from my local feed shop for about £2.80 each. The likits need to be used in conjunction with a Likit Boredom Breaker (about £25) or Likit holder (about £12). These products hang from the ceiling of your stable or a beam and are meant to be hung 50cm away from any walls so that the horse has to work to be able to get their treat.

      The Likits come in a number of flavours including cherry, banana, mint, carrot, apple, garlic and honey and camomile. Himilayan rock salt and electrolyte varieties are also available. Special editions come out a few times a year too. They do strawberry and cream varieties for wimbledon and Christmas pudding or gingerbread ones for Christmas. They do actually taste realy good as yes I have tried them myself. The raspberry and cream one that came out a while ago was lovely and one of my friends actually asked for one for herself for her birthday.

      The Likit products help to releive boredom in the stable and enriches the stable environment which helps to reduce stress. I use Likit holders for my horses and they have worked out how to eat them in about 15 mins. I buy them as treats once a week or fortnight for my horses as they can end up being quite expensive. My girls have tried all the flavours and like all of them apart from the Banana one which they will not touch.
