Salt is Essential!
posted 6 years ago
A horse will only consume what they need. Salt is an essential mineral. If you give a horse a salt block they will go to town on it if they have not had it available to them. Over time they will realize the salt will be there for them and they will back off the use. We keep salt blocks in all of our horse stalls and in all the pastures. The deer, donkeys, horses and heifer all lick the blocks. I have even on occasion seen the Great Pyrenees licking them. Affordable! You can free range loose salt or block salt. Always provide fresh water to animals with salt.
Pros: essential mineral, effective, healthy

I had a salt or mineral block available to my horse at all times. It lasted months, depending on the season -- longer when it was cold, when I'd supplement hay with grain that had some sodium chloride in it. Horses can sweat out sodium in large quantities in hot weather, and they must have it replenished. This is an easy way to have peace of mind about meeting that nutritional need.
Pros: Cheap insurance for horse's health
