Salt Block Holders
Salt is an essential factor in your horse's balanced diet. In fact, in order to meet their daily requirements of sodium and chloride, a horse needs to ingest 1-2 ounces of salt each day, and they need even more in the summer months when they are frequently sweating. Salt blocks and salt licks are an easy and convenient way to ensure that your horses have access to the salt that they need.
Provide access to salt licks in every location that your horse spends time with a salt block holder from top quality stable supply brands like Apple Picker, High Country Plastics, Jacks, Miller Manufacturing, and Roma. We carry holders for salt blocks of every size, from small blocks to blocks as large as 50 lb.
The holders that we carry come in rust-resistant materials, including durable plastic, PVC-coated metal, and powder-coated metal. We recommend keeping a salt block in your horse's stall, as well as one in your horse's turnout. If your paddock has a run-in shed or another shelter, this is an ideal area to store the salt so that it is protected from the elements. The High Country Plastics Metal Salt Block Holder conveniently clips to fencing panels to make it easy to provide salt for your horse if he is turned out in a round pen.
Keeping your salt block in a holder allows your horse to lick the salt block, but makes it difficult for him to bite it. This ensures that your salt block lasts as long as possible and minimizes overconsumption or waste.
Extend the life of your salt block and keep it conveniently located for your horse with a salt block holder. If you have any questions about the holders that we carry or would assistance selecting the right salt block feeder for your barn, we invite you to reach out to a member of our friendly sales staff who all have years of experience with horses.
