    I have never fully gotten the aspect of added minerals but I want to get some for my boy now and just trying to weigh out the options.
    I have a bucket that I put the mineral in...I only put like 2 cups at a time, just to ensure it's not going to all get spoiled by rain or anything else that may get in there...I check it a couple of times a week, and change it when there is too much hay, or if there are ANY bugs in it! Also change it if it gets damp, just to be sure! At first this summer when I was finally able to get more after moving, she went through alot, but now, she's not going through as much.

    It's okay...I don't tend to take things too personally

    I give my guys the Purina Nature's Essentials 12:12 also. It lasts probably 6 months to a year. I think it's up to around $30 in price though. But as long as it lasts, it's worth it for my piece of mind. Because I know if the horses want it, it's there.

    Now I have a friend who put one out whose horses at it in like 2 weeks! But they had never had one before, so I think that's why. She bought a second one and it is lasting longer.

    I also give my guys white salt blocks.

    We have a white and brown salt block and a mineral block. They seem to like the mineral block the best but got to each one of them and never seem to over do it.
