[RC] Horse management in excessive heat - Jonni

Jeannie posted: >>>Living in "cattle country" I was told by the cowboys that
horses need loose
salt, as they don't have the same rough tongue as a cow, and therefore don't
usually get the salt they need from a salt lick.<<<

Humm, that is an interesting concept. But I wonder why I see mine get those
little cups and groves, and disappear. LOL  They must be getting something
off of it.

And, I'm of the school that if they are not "working' and just hanging out
in the pasture, their bodies tell them what they need. They have the salt
block, and some use it more than the others.  But also, we do not have the
high humidity here, and they have not been sweating just standing around.

Find what works for your horse.
