WOW. I didn't even know that was a thing!!!!!! I guess that could be contributing to it- but I just thought he needed the minerals more. 🤷🏽♀️ He usually will lick it in the morning (after breakfast) and in the evening (after dinner). I go through alot of salt between the three of my horses. But I have noticed that this guy is eating A TON more than the others- I thought it was because he had diarrhea and needed to replenish his salts he was losing. I just don't know how I'd limit the salt... I guess just put it in the feeder like twice a week or so? I'll definitely try rationing it. Thank you SO much! I really had no idea.
