Equine America has been one of the leading suppliers of top equine products for over 10 years, if you are horse lover I am sure you have heard about it. But are you aware of one of their latest products?
it is a revolutionary anti-chewing gel for horses, which has been called the rather hilarious name of” Just Plain Nasty”. Let’s face it, horses and ponies chewing on things such as stable doors, fences and gates has been a huge problem for centuries, and if you own a lot of horses then you are no doubt aware of this problem.
While Just Plain Nasty has been popular in the United States for a few months now, there has been talk of introducing it to England, and more specifically, the North West of England. So what do you say horse owners in the North West…is this a product that you would buy and use…or something that you would stay away from?
A spokesperson for the Equine America company recently stated that Just Plain Nasty is easy to use and incredibly effective. Just simply apply the product to the surface with a brush and then expect it to be effective for around 2 to 3 days.

How to stop a horse chewing
Maybe you don’t like the idea of using any product and would like to seek out alternative ways to stop your horse chewing things such as gates and fences. In this type of scenario there are a number of actions that you can try in an attempt to reduce the chewing. Let’s take a look at a few…
Feed your horse a balanced diet
Did you know that many times increased chewing from your horse is due to an incomplete diet? In other words, you might not be feeding them enough of the right foods, which means trying to make everything more balanced could stop the chewing problem once and for all.
Make sure your horse gets plenty of grass, hay, and grains such as oats. Also, keep them well hydrated with water, and add a salt block into the stable so they can keep their PH balance and electrolytes well maintained.
More exercise time
Have you ever considered the fact that you horse might be chewing on things to burn up excess energy? If they are not getting enough exercise time then they will be quite literally bouncing off the walls and chomping at the bit to get out and run free.
Sometimes though, taking them out for more riding is not always a viable option, especially if you currently live a busy life. With this in mind, it might be a good idea to hire someone to take out your horse on a daily basis, so the horse gets all of the exercise it needs and doesn’t start chewing everything in sight.
Also, keep in mind that excess chewing could be due to not enough time outdoors eating grass, so you might want to try giving the horse an extra hour or two to munch on the green stuff.
