Can a horse lick too much salt. Its a Rock mineral and I put it in the barn next to the water troft. My mare just keeps licking it when she is in the barn. She went through half of it in 3 weeks. Yesterday I noticed she did'nt want to eat her morning hay and just stood at one end of the pasture with her head down. I walked her alot and she did poop but not that much. Anyway could the salt have upset her digestive system. I have heard that even though she is dringking alot of water (much more than she did before), she could still get dehydrated.
One more thing I used to keep one of those red salt blocks out in the pasture by the water trofts and both of my horses hardly ever licked it. These rocks that I have now are different. Anyway just wondering if that could have had something to do with her mild colic yesterday. Mabe I'll move the rock over to the other side of the stall.
