When Likits, the suppliers of horse treats and stable toys sent us a parcel of goodies for us to test on our trusty fleet of Totally Horse & Pony Magazine equines, we were almost as excited as the horses were when they got wind of them!
Beautifully packaged in bright colours and looking as enticing to eat for humans as equines -(no, we didn’t try them and we don’t recommend you do – although we have heard that some of our intrepid followers have – with positive reactions we should add!) these treats looked very promising.
We offered a small handful of the Snaks to each of our horses, all quickly consumed them with some enthusiasm, – nudging and looking for more just as soon as they had swallowed the mouthful! The apple & cinnamon flavour turned out to be the favourite!
We also used the Snaks as a diversion technique for Belle who has a hatred of having her forelock plaited – job done – easy!
Next we put the Snak-A-Ball to the test. The Snak-a-Ball is suitable for all horses and ponies and can be used indoors or out. The challenge for this product increases as the horse uses the product. Simply fill with any dry feed, ideally pelleted or Likit Snaks. As the horse nudges the ball it will roll and the feed will trickle out. The less feed left in the ball, the higher the level of challenge for the horse. With a handful of Snacks inside the ball, we set it down in Trigger’s stable and waited to see what happened. It took him approximately one nano-second to clock onto the Ball and start trundling it about in search of the snacks that dropped out from the inside. The suppliers of the Ball rate it as having a “medium” 2 rosette challenge level – some of our other horses either found it a bit more tricky to work out, (or else they fall below the IQ level set by Likits!) but they did eventually suss it and enjoyed playing with it.
If you think your horse or pony would enjoy these goodies, we’ve got the most amazing prize package from Likit worth £75! This includes the fabulous Likit Boredom Breaker for keeping the horse occupied and entertained when stabled. And, if that isn’t enough to keep your horse happy, the winner will also receive a Likit Snak-a-Ball . Not only that, the winner will also get Likit & Little Likit Multipacks and 2 x 500g packs of Likit Snacks!!
