Redmond rocks, who, why and, reviews?

I grabbed one at TSC today. Because well, I like the idea that its all natural and is higher in minerals then a commercial block. And no molasses. My three ring circus will get it tomorrow, so I suppose I'll find out myself.

But what's y'all's opinions on em? The 7lbs chunk.

I see they are all the rage now, every feedstore has a bin of them. I don't bother with stuff like that, I heard that most horses can't lick enough each day to get what they require. I give Hoffman's minerals, which instructs to take away any salt or mineral blocks to encourage the horse to seek out the minerals added to their feed. I dunno, anyways less deer in the horse's pasture licking salt, darn rats with hooves.

Lol, the deer won't come in our pasture. Probly the old angry mare. We see tracks all around th fence and you can see where the they pick up wind blown hay, but not once jumped the fence.

I kinda figured WTH. I'll try it. Honestly didn't know it was all the rage. Seen it, thought about it, today said eh I'll try it.

I went to loose minerals and add a tad to their beet pulp. Seemed my horses didn't touch their block much and the redmond rock I bought just ended up dissolving with moisture and rain until it was gone.

I have been to the two local tackstores, both have a big cardboard drop shipment type bins of them. One of the tackstores is a feedstore, the other just sells westernwear & high end tack but it had that bin. Then I was out of town at 2 other feed/tack stores, both had the bin with those blocks. Was your block in a big bin with lettering all over it advertising the Redmond Block?

Well at least I'll know why the spot I put it won't grow anything!

The newest addition to our herd had single handedly destroyed a stockman mineral block. And he looks pretty good now, the other two could care less. But he was a dirt licker and thin. Well see I suppose.

No, it's just a ROCK, or a chunk as id call it. Plastic wrapped with a tag floating around inside.

I hear they are great for the ones that do lick them. And they get really pretty also when licked a lot, lol. Shiney and smoothe. Let me know how it goes.
