last few years Likit have built up a close relationship with
Fred & Rowena Cook of Equine Management &
Training who are specialists in Backing, Schooling &
Training + racehorse retraining. As you can imagine they deal with
a number of different personalities on their yard
and as such they have found some novel uses for Likit
Products. One such use is helping to
settle horses and ponies that fidget when they need to
stand still, here's a little story about how Likits have helped one
horse in particular called Carli...
"Despite the fast work of our farrier we have 2 horses
which, by the time hind shoes are nailed on, start to fidget purely
because they are bored with the process, making the task harder and
Our Farrier, Nick Forryan DipWCF explains;
"Charli is a great character, very cheeky and very active. Standing
still is most definitely not his fortay; he gets fed up very
quickly so by the time we come to nail on and clench up behind he's
rather bored by proceedings and becomes a real fidget; the job
takes twice if not three times as long. He's not being naughty,
it's just the way he is. By giving him a LIKIT to
keep him occupied we can get the job done quickly and
safely without Charli becoming fractious andrisking damage
to himself, me or my apprentices."
Rowena adds "By offering them a LIKIT they are kept suitably
occupied, the job is done, farrier, horse and ourselves are happy -
what could be easier? Thank you LIKIT for a great range of
extremely beneficial products."
If you have found Likits of benefit in novel situations we would
love to hear from you!
