I have a small salt block and a mineral block for them to pick on. I have have a himalayan salt lick but I'm not sure if they go after that. Last time I hung one up, it was gone within days. Now's not the case, it's been hanging for about 3-4 weeks and looks like it's barely been touched.
So I know that licks can agitate a horse's tongue and turn them off from the lick. I've never had that problem, but I am interested in feeding loose salt. But I just don't know what kind of salt? Do I use iodized salt like we use, or do I use sea salt with the bigger granules? I want to keep a block out there as there's really no where to shelter the loose salt, so I can't put out loose salt when it rains. I basically just need to know what salt to use.
