Horses like to lick the salt stone to overcome their thirst. There are several types of horse salt licks in Australia are available. A salt stone can contain varying amounts of salt, from 100 to 30% minimum. Other components can therefore be integrated. In general, these are trace elements (copper, zinc, selenium, iodine, etc.),molasses, which also provide potassium, even vitamins, yeasts, etc. A horse consumes around 50g per day of the salt block.

Price and Availability

When a horse is on the pasture permanently, without supplement of any kind, a salt stone enriched in trace elements makes it possible to compensate, at least partially, the deficiencies in copper, zinc, and selenium, even in iodine in the zones of Mountain. Here above we have enlisted-in some of the stores from where you can buy these Horse Salts. Horse Salt Lick's price in Australia varies according to the type and size of the salt block.

Description

The horse can regulate its salt intake according to its needs. Salt is made up of chlorine (NaCl). The body of the horse contains 0.29% of NaCl, mainly in the circulating fluids, and little inside the cells. Which represents 1.45kg of salt in a 500kg horse. Salt is not stored in the body: it is ingested, then it circulates and is finally eliminated in the urine and the sweat.

Thus, a horse, even at rest, must consume salt to cover its chlorine and sodium needs. Salt intake has other benefits: it stimulates appetite, watering, improves digestion, and helps maintain healthy intestinal flora.  First, we must know that there are many types of stones or blocks of salt. All of them are blocks of minerals that, as soon as the horse ingests them and they dissolve, are transformed into electrolytes.

The pure salt is sodium chloride. It will provide sodium and chlorine electrolytes, necessary for many functions in the horse's physiology. If the block of salt only contains sodium chloride it will be a stone of pure salt. The salt blocks can carry, in addition to what we know as common salt, other minerals such as zinc, iron, manganese, copper, iodine, and cobalt. So we can call them mineralized salt blocks.

The horse will take as much mineralized stone as it needs to meet its sodium needs. If the horse needs a lot of sodium, it may be that, by consuming a lot of mineralized stone, it consumes an excess of the other minerals. This is rare, but maybe the source of the controversy that salt stones are bad for horses.

The bad thing is not the stone of salt, it is that you consume it in too much quantity for some type of anomalous cause. You must discover that cause. As soon as the solutions, the consumption of the blocks will be normalized and will be healthy.
