Flavoured Health Licks 2kg
Rockies Flavoured Health Licks are a ‘treat’ that offers a much healthier alternative to treats based on sugar and molasses, which can quickly make an animal overweight.
Apart from essential salt, Health Licks contain a good balance of the minerals and trace elements that are vital to good health in horses and ponies. Use them all year round but especially during hotter months.
Horses and ponies like treats but their biology is similar to ours, so whatever makes us fat makes them fat too. Too many sweet treats can lead to serious (and expensive) problems such as laminitis. Rockies Flavoured Health Licks are enjoyable treats that improve rather than harm horse and pony health.
5 Star Rockies- 5kg
Calorie-free 5 Star Rockies will help keep your horse or pony in excellent condition all year round, whether at grass or in the stable. They contain trace elements and herbs, and apple flavouring and fenugreek make them highly palatable.

LaminShield Rockies – 2kg
he LaminShield range (LaminShield, LaminShield Pure and LaminShield Mini) provides an easy, safe and palatable way to ensure that horses and ponies get enough magnesium and other essential minerals.

Is at grass all year round.
Grazes on acid or marshy soils.
Is on a high concentrate diet.
Is kept in stressful conditions.
Suffers from muscular tension.
Is a native breed.
