Rockies Health licks offer you a wise choice alternative to suagary licks which can lead to overweight animals. Primarily containing essential salt and other vital minerals and trace elements, they can help replace the missing goodness that is crucial to maintaining a healthy horse. Use them all year round - but especially during the hotter summer months.
All Rockies 2kg Flavoured Health Licks contain:
Calcium and Phosphorus are critical for healthy bones and teeth. Deficiencies can cause brittle bones (and rickets) and can lead to fractures and lameness. Phosphorus deficient animals may develop abnormal eating habits.
Sodium and Chloride are needed for body fluid regulation. Chronic shortage can lead to decreased eating and drinking, and therefore dehydration.
Iron is for strength. It is a primary component of blood haemoglobin. Deficiency leads to anaemia and weak, listless horses.
Cobalt is required for vitamin B12 synthesis. Vitamin B12 deficient horses show poor health and performance and rarely anaemia.
Copper is needed for connective tissue and iron utilisation. Deficiency can lead to bone and joint problems as well as anaemia. A symptom can be a dull, discoloured coat.
Iodine is a component of the thyroid hormones that regulate metabolism and growth. Iodine insufficiency can be a particular problem in breeding mares.
Manganese is needed for cartilage development as well as for proper utilisation of other trace elements. Cartilage damage and bone deformities can occur particularly in growing stock
Selenium deficiency can lead to gait abnormalities and stumbling. White muscle deficiency is a potential problem in foals while mares can be poorer breeders. Selenium is a key component of the anti-oxidant enzyme system.
Zinc is very important for healthy skin, bone, hoof and connective tissue and for breeding mares. Poor, brittle or crumbly hoof quality and dry flaking skin conditions can be deficiency symptoms. Reduced appetite may also occur.

We aim to dispatch all orders received before 2pm the same working day (with the exception of some items that clearly show a delayed dispatch notice on the product image).
The order may also be delivered to your place of work or left in a safe place at the chosen delivery address (safe place does not require a signature but is left at the customers own risk). Please be aware all orders require a signature upon delivery, unless requested otherwise. Delivery charges are calculated on the delivery weight that we assign to a product. This may differ from the actual weight of the product, for example, in instances where the bulky nature of the product means increased postage costs apply. If there is no one in to sign for the delivery and a safe place has not been selected a card will be left and an automatic re-delivery will be attempted the next working day. If for a second time the delivery has not been signed for a second card will be left detailing how to re-arrange delivery. If no attempt is made to re-arrange delivery, the order will returned to us. If the order is returned to us after the second card attempt we will incur a charge which may be passed on to the customer.
