What is the difference between the dry and liquid products?
The main difference between the dry herbs and the herbal tinctures is the speed of initial absorption by your horse or pony's system. Just occasionally you will get a horse or pony who responds better to the dry herbs than the tinctures, or vice-versa. There is no logic behind this, just a reminder that horses and ponies are individuals - like us!
1. Its not unusual for your horse or pony to have a bit of a 'snotty nose' after a week or so of being on Freeway Gold, this is just an indication that the herbs are doing their job.
2. Liquorice has been used for both humans and animals for over 3,000 years, and was mentioned in ancient Greek herbal in the third century BC. Its main active constituent glycyrrhizin is responsible for the sweet taste and is over fifty times sweeter than sugar! Up until the 1940's liquorice was cultivated extensively in the north of England, this accounts for the famous Pontefract Cakes, a soft coin shaped liquorice sweet that was named after the Yorkshire town where they were made.
