Worked well and my mare's droppings have returned to normal.  We have recently moved to a yard where the soil is very sandy and she was showing signs of sand colic.

DIDN'T DO WHAT I THOUGHT IT WOULD, BUT THAT'S NOT YOUR FAULT

Used it for years and only use the Feedmark psyllium.  It works really well and gets rid of sand almost instantly - highly recommended

My daughters pony is on restricted grazing and we're on sandy land. She has psylium husks once a month to stop the risk of sand colic

Gives reassurance. All horse carers need to be more aware of the dangers of sand colic, even if they think the land isn’t sandy.

Great for horses at risk of sand colic.
Trusted Feefo Customer - 01/12/2019 22:09
Psylium husks are very dusty and despite lots of chaff they tend to be left at the bottom of the bucket. Poor for horses with breathing issues. To be supplied in a different form would be beneficial.

An essential product for sandy grazers.

Nutrition Information

Psyllium Husks have been used traditionally in humans, and are a recognised management option for horses with sand burdens. As a soluble fibre source Psyllium Husks form a gel-like substance when exposed to water. The water absorbing properties of Psyllium means it acts as a hydroscopic sponge, allowing it to pick up and aid the removal of unwanted foreign material (such as sand and indigestible roughage) from the folds and bends of the digestive tract.

Composition
