NEW SmartLick

SmartLick contains a blend of essential vitamins and minerals to help maintain ideal condition for every horse and pony, plus a yeast-based prebiotic to support beneficial intestinal bacteria.  Using SmartLick ensures that your horse or pony can access the vitamins and minerals when they need them, providing a natural ‘little and often’ approach to feeding. SmartLick has been manufactured in accordance with the BETA NOPS code and therefore monitored for the presence of specified Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances (NOPS) as required under the rules of racing and other affiliated competitions.  Adherence to these guidelines ensures that the risk of occurrence of such substances is minimised.

Value and Quality

SmartLick is a poured block supplying an essential blend of vitamins and minerals with a tasty vanilla flavouring for improved palatability.  It has been formulated to have a combined sugar and starch level of less than 30% with a starch level of less than 10% and a sugar level of 20%.  When considering sugar levels, it’s important to remember the overall sugar taken in the day, so the 20% of sugar in SmartLick when fed to a 500kg horse at recommended intakes of 250g per day will only provide 50g of sugar per day, which is similar to two large apples and the 9.25% starch will contribute only 23.2g of starch to the diet which is just less than two Weetabix!  The intake from SmartLick will be gradual over the day unlike the apples or Weetabix which will be rapidly consumed. SmartLick is a high quality, cost effective, weatherproof solution for feeding horses and ponies, providing vitamins, minerals and trace elements whether at grass or stabled, in work or leisure, young or old.

SmartLick is incredibly good value and the suggested retail price is £19.99 for 12.5kg.  A 12.5kg tub should last approximately 50 days for a 500kg horse at recommended daily intakes of 250g per day, which results in a cost per day of just 40p*. Vanilla flavouring was chosen as it is one of the preferred flavours when palatability trials have been conducted on horses.  SmartLick was concluded to be highly palatable in field trials conducted over several locations with numerous different equines.
