Feed at a rate of 1 block per 5 horses. This allows animals equal access to blocks. Place blocks where horses con-gregate. Locate blocks throughout pasture, placing them near water and loafing areas. Maintain adequate distance between blocks (10 ft. Minimum). Do not allow horses to run out of blocks. When a block is half-consumed, place a new block near it. Place small pieces in troughs or feed pans. Horses will consume on average of 1 to 2.5 lbs. per head daily. Blocks can be fed to horses in confinement. Exact location to obtain desired consumption will vary be-tween confinement feeding programs. Feed as the only FREE CHOICE source of salt, minerals and vitamins. Pro-vide fresh, clean water to all horses at all times.
