Where can I find a small salt block?

I've been looking online for a small salt block that can fit into a salt block holder.

Like one of these:

I've tried searching equine salt blocks and equine salt licks. The only results I get are for salt block holders, 50lb salt blocks, loose salt and Himalayan salt. I just want a small salt/mineral block for one horse. Can you guys give me a link please?

Our Tractor Supply carries them. Try searching mineral blocks instead of salt block.

Tractor Supply is the only place around me. I also checked in Southern States, but they have only big ones.

Look in your yellow pages under Farm Supply or Livestock supply.

Also search for salt bricks. Here the blocks are always the 50 lb ones...anything smaller is called a brick here.

Browsing Store - Sturdy Steed Salt Block 4 lb
These guys have small flavored ones. Our local feed store carries them. Might try locally.

Yep, as others have already said, we got ours at Tractor Supply---very inexpensive too. I believe we only paid about 5 bucks for ours.

We get cases of them from the local feed store, but i've seen them sold individually as well. I think I've seen them at places like Atwoods as well.
