They licked that sucker smooth! Apperently they like it, and from 9 last night till 6 today they drank 70gallons of water. Usually they only drink 30 gallons a day. It's been pretty hot though.

I bought one for my horse, he seemed to like it and then it mysteriously disappeared... I think someone on the barn staff threw it out because it just looked like a rock. I'll get something a little less incognito next time, I suppose.

Hey, after complaining to you guys about the price of these things (when they used to be cheaper than white salt) I had a pleasant surprise on my last visit to CAL Ranch.

Yes, they still had a display of 7 lb Redmond Rocks for like $12 (no way!) but when I went back to the salt block section they now have Redmond Dura Blocks. It is apparently the Redmond salt processed into a 44 lb block. The best part is it was only about $5.50 for 44 lbs! Yay!!! I bought my horses 2 blocks (for separate pens) and they love it!

Glad to finally be getting the natural salt again. My horses do seem to prefer it.

Dang you Phyl, I went & bought one for the deer, and they haven't touched it!!! Put it in the horses' paddock, not really touched that much either.

Once I move, I'm going to need to buy one of these. Just for the novelty if nothing else. I want to see a shiny rock too! My horse picks salt bricks/chunks up out of his bucket as soon as they're small enough for him to grab in his teeth and throws them in the aisle... guess that's what he thinks of them so far! I've tried the regular bricks and himalayan chunks. Maybe he'll like redmond better.

My herd would eat normal rocks, lol.

I tasted it, pretty tasty really. I'll continue using them, though I may try and find a cheaper retailer.
If one exists.
I did notice, after initial desemation of the Redmond, it's slowed. Possibly the novelty or possibly they got what they needed?
