My pony currently has a mineral lick block for the first time since we got her. It is the cylinder shape with a hole through the middle where the rope goes to hang it up. Similar to this shape: Online Horse Supplies - Natural mineral supplement - Himalayan Natural Salt Lick on a Rope
I turn it around each time I go out to see her (agisted) to try and wear it evenly, but she has worn it down to holes in a couple places and i'm not sure how much longer the rope will keep holding it.
What do others do when the mineral/salt lick wont stay on its rope but still has heaps left on it?
Googling. I found a 20kg block (Barastoc Horse Block Mineral Lick 20 kilo | Marlborough Park Saddlery) that looks like it might be a better option next time, although for only 2 ponies I imagine it would last for YEARS, but for now trying to get the most out of what I've already bought.
