My horse LOVES these! He really favors the mint one.This may sound odd, buy sometimes I try my pets treats (except my cat's treats, because of the nasty ingredients... ick) Other than the cat treats, I always try to buy treats that only have stuff in them that I would eat. Natural, safe, healthy. So, in honesty, I ate a small chunk that fell off of a newly opened cherry likit, and I was shocked at how good it taste! :) Hahaha, so no wonder horses love them. - and if you think that is gross, the likits have the same things in them that can be found in human food. So although it isn't made for humans, it is made of the same things.I would be careful with the molasses flavor because, like my horse, some horses are allergic to molasses. I've gotten to making him home made treats and having to buy molasses free treats because of his reactions.TIP: do NOT just place this in their buckets; they can grip it and take a HUGE bite out of it and they can eat it within one sitting. you MUST use the toy accessories that the likit's belong with, so that they can not just bite it to bits.TIP: I found that during the coldest times of winter, the likits would freeze / harden and wouldn't lick as easy and beau really struggled to get any, unlike the summer where it goes faster (he was licking it the same amount in summer and winter)You can try soaking it in warm water for a few mins and thoroughly drying it off, so it gets softer and so it makes it easier for them to lick it, or you can keep one in a warm area, like closer to a heaving vent (but obviously not on it!) (& i am not sure how it would do with microwaving) and switch the warm likit with the cold one every so often so that your horse can enjoy it easier, and they get a warm tasty treat while its cold out.TIP: During the summer, you can have a few flavors in the freezer, and switch them out with the treat set out for your horse every so often so your horse has a nice cool treat to lick on when its hot out.Overall, yes I agree it is expensive, but I still really like these treats. I suggest you should give them a try. If you dont want to dish out all that money for the treat AND the toys, if you aren't sure your horse will like the treat, just buy one of these refills and see if your horse is interested, then you can get the toys that go with it.Give it a try :)I suggest getting more than just one flavor though.
