Free Choice Salt Blocks

I recently purchased a salt block from a local farm store, and when I got home, I noticed the label read it was softener salt. Is this safe to give to my horses? Or should I try to find one that says it is for livestock? Thanks!

Personally, I would take it back to the store.

Please read this link and then decide; especially the part about horses with HYPP. It's a good read and not too long

Does your grain store offer a Himalayan salt block? I have a candle version of the blocks that I find myself licking! Haha!

Thank you for that article, walkinthewalk! I will be returning the block to the feed store. :)
