Which one is more beneficial to the horse : salt or mineral block?
my horse is worked every day for about 30 minutes. she doesnt sweat like a beast, but there is usually a little. (mostly under the saddle/pad)
Also, how much is too much? The last mineral block I got her disappeared in about 2 weeks, if not less. But i dont think she actually consumed all of it. I found half of it in her stall about 6 days after I put it in there, and im thinking she knocked that remaining half down and it got taken out when her stall was cleaned.
Also, I think she only eats it right before feed. She gets really antsy when she hears/see's the grain and hay coming, and is one of those horses who grinds their teeth on her stall bars and such. Knowing her, she just bit the salt block in anticipation every morning before feed. So, its not like she sits there and chomps on it. (well at least when im there she doesnt)
