Horses are nuts for loose minerals!
Let me start by saying that my horses both get a multivitamin and have access to a salt block. I read that loose salt/loose minerals are easier for horses than a block, so when their salt block ran out, I bought a loose mineral, Ragland's High Performance Horse mineral. Well, my husband set the bag too close to the fence last night, and my horses reached through and opened the bag to get to it. When I put it out, they both took big mouthfuls of it. They've since left it alone, so I'm not too worried they're going to overeat it now, but I'm curious why it was so appealing to them? They worked pretty hard to steal the bag and open it through the fence. Is their diet not as balanced as I think it is, or are they just being obnoxious because it's a new thing?
