Folks, salt is important for your horse. Unlike us heathen humans, horses self-regulate their salt intake quite well. They don’t get enough to meet requirements naturally occurring in their feed, so make sure you provide some. Here are a few options.
Trace mineral block: My horse quite likes these, but I give him a vitamin/mineral supplement, so I worry about any mineral toxicity issues it could cause.
Himalayan salt block: He likes these pretty little wheels a little too much, disposing of one in about a week.
Redmond Rock: Had one of these sitting in the trough for a while and he won’t touch it. Sad.
So, we’re going to try the PLAIN WHITE SALT. This is still second best to a feeder of loose plain salt, which I hear is the closest to ideal, but I don’t have a feeder or a source of a gazillion pounds of loose salt. We’ll see if it does better than “the rock”!
