I would love to try a likit, but despite my pestering (emails etc to the company) they won't sell them in NZ yet. I just choose cheap, unflavoured licks from a local farming supply store.

Good luck with your essay if you haven't already completed it!

1. B for both of my horses (although my mare comes in at night in the winter sometimes due to the cold and her age)

2. A & E: E only because it's out in the field so they might play with it and I not notice

3. A & B: my horses like them and use them but more as a dietary supplement then as a boredom reliever.
