We have both a salt and mineral block so we are covered.

You're welcome. I don't think you HAVE to if you're growing your own hay, it's just a personal preference for some people.

Growing your own hay doenst tell you whats in it. The nutrient content of the grass will change based on soil and weather conditions.
But, much better things to do than worry about silly stuff, I've got one of those rock things and a square white salt one. Sometimes I have the square red ones. I feed about a quart of feed twice a day as well. On work days and after he gets electrolyte supplements sprinkled on his food.

Both of my horses have liked the "rock" blocks-but they do melt in rain, & the horses go through them pretty quickly, they do have minerals in them. My second choice is the red mineral block. I like the smaller ones as the 50 pounders are hard to move when you're dashing through the rain to "rescue" them-haha.

I have three (salt, Purina 50lb 12/12, and red rock ). The horses like the rock the best.

I have a mineral block in turnout and a salt block in his stall. Doesn't seem to touch the mineral block much (he gets a vitamin/mineral supplement in his feed) bt he does like the salt block.
