The key word here is “mineral”. The Horsepower Minerals Plus block is a great way to provide ad-lib minerals to horses. Where traditional salt licks provide little more than “treat” value, having a Minerals Plus block available allows the horse to supplement its own mineral requirements “on demand” and according to its individual needs.

Formulated specifically for horses (not cattle, sheep or other ruminants), the block has excellent levels of copper, zinc and manganese, which are so often lacking in their diets.

The blocks contain zeolite, a complex natural mineral that has been added to improve digestive efficiency, neutralise fungal toxins and provide silica to assist in strengthening connective tissues.

While chewing wood and bark can signal a lack of fibre or roughage in a horse’s diet, chewing dirt may indicate a mineral deficiency. The new 5 kg and 2.5 kg blocks are great for horses in a stable or yard environment, as they provide a physical health benefit as well as mental stimulation. The advantage of this is that boredom is often a precursor to stable vices such as cribbing, weaving and even wind-sucking.

The 20 kg blocks are best suited to horses in a paddock environment.
