So I invested in FeedXL for a second time to see what Bubba was getting. I'm switching him back over to Henny's RB as with his current feed, he's dangerously low on selenium and Vit E. However, both of their diets are lacking sodium.
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.
