Do you have a picky eater? So do we, and here’s the solution for our forever finicky mare. Treats! That’s right, treats. They’re easy to make, she loves them and most importantly they keep her colic & ulcer issues at bay.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 tbsp of GastroElm plus
2-3 tbsp oats or sweet feed
1 tsp molasses
Small amount of Water to combine
First put GastroElm plus, oats and molasses into a small mixing bowl and mix together until combined.
Slowly add a small amount of water to mixture until it starts to come together forming a putty like consistency.
Roll mixture into a ball, roll in additional oats if desired.
This recipe is for 1 treat / 1 dose of GastroElm Plus. I make my mare’s treat daily so that I can ensure it’s freshness, but feel free to make this recipe on a larger scale and store the remaining balls in the refrigerator for up to a week. This recipe is VERY adaptable. Mix in what your horse enjoys such as apples, peppermints or their favorite treat. Use more or less molasses to the liking of your horse.
