What is it?
Horslyx Mint Balancer will supply your horse with a balance of nutrients to keep him healthy, happy and performing at his best all year round with a cool refreshing peppermint flavour.
As with all Horslyx Balancers, Mint Balancer will promote a natural trickle feed pattern that allows the horse to self-regulate and consume Horslyx as and when he needs it. This leads to better digestion, less stress and a happier, healthier horse.
Mint Balancer is ideal for all horses and ponies, both competition and leisure, stabled and grass kept and is even suitable for laminitis prone horses and ponies when fed correctly, please see our feeding guidelines for further information.
Why should I feed Horslyx Mint Balancer?
- For a cool refreshing flavour making it the ideal choice for fussy equines.
- To provide a weatherproof feeding solution which is perfect for use both in the stable and in the field.
- When fed at the recommended intake level for your horse, Mint Balancer is cost effective and will save you money.
- There is no need to feed additional balancers and many horses and ponies thrive on a diet of just a Horslyx Balancer and forage.
- Licking takes time and patience, which is perfect for horses that are stabled for long periods of time and can help reduce stress and boredom.
- Perfect for older equines with poor dentition that struggle to eat hard feed.
- Licking enhances saliva production, which helps support the digestive system.
Peppermint Oil: The cool refreshing flavour of real peppermint oil is loved by many horses, the aroma and taste of mint often makes it an ideal appetite stimulant for fussy equines.
Linseed Oil: Linseed oil is rich in Omega-3 oil and can help in producing a healthy glossy coat, healthy skin and boost the immune system. A horse’s natural diet can be low in Omega-3 so horses often need an additional source to provide these essential fatty acids for optimum health.
Proteins: Protein is important to all horses since it provides the building blocks (amino acids) required for muscle tissue synthesis. Some amino acids can be manufactured by the horse (these are called “non essential” amino acids) and some have to be provided by the diet (“essential” amino acids) because they cannot be produced by the horse.
Antioxidants: A combination or powerful antioxidants such as Vitamin E, Selenium, chelated Copper and Zinc are induced to support and maintain a healthy immune system, which maximises the ability to support all round health and vitality.
Horslyx Balancers Horslyx Balancers were first manufactured in 1997 at our plant, based at Silloth in Cumbria. The debut product in the equestrian range was Original Horslyx and after initial success Respiratory, Garlic and Mobility Horslyx were introduced. In 2005 a bespoke extension was added enabling Mini Horslyx to be manufactured and today you can purchase Horslyx in packs ranging from 650g up to 80kg. Recently Mint and Pro Digest formulations have been added to the range in size 650g, 5kg and 15kg.
Horslyx Balancers have been carefully formulated to balance the deficiencies in forage and grazing. This is a unique and innovative approach to ensuring that the modern horse receives an ideal supply of vitamins, minerals and trace elements to support optimum health and vitality.
A Balancer in a Lick?
Balancers are available in varying formats, from the lick of a Horslyx to the more common pelleted versions. They all have in common the fact that they are concentrated feeds; rich in vitamins, minerals and high quality protein containing essential amino acids, low in energy and are designed to balance the diet. This means that balancers can be fed in small amounts giving a horse all of their daily vitamins and mineral requirements without the extra calories. This method of feeding has much more in common with how horses evolved to eat, providing a trickle feed supply of nutrients, so helping to keep your horse healthier and happier.
Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
The horse evolved to eat little and often over the day, with the main part of the diet being forage. However, today’s forage is a far cry from that which our equine’s ancestors would have roamed on and grazed in history. While times may have changed, our horse’s digestive system hasn’t, and we need to take this into consideration when planning a feeding regime, ideally keeping the principles of a diet based mainly on forage with a trickle feed supply of nutrients provided to balance the diet to keep our equines healthy. For this reason, Horslyx Balancers have been created to provide the goodness required for horses to remain in peak health.
