With the very hot weather the grass is now very short. My horse had sand colic some years ago and a regular course of psyllium husks helps eradicate any sand he may have eaten.

Does the job, currently on very sandy soil and not worth the risk of sand colic. Only wish there was an option for a refill bag, currently only available in a tub.

Psyllium is part of basic care for my horses.

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

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
