Himalayan Rock Salt Licks are literally rock hard, which means that horses and ponies are unable to bite chunks off, a problem that can occur with the softer 'pressed' salt licks. The licks are also much more weather-resistant and can be hung up in the pasture for horses and ponies to 'self dose' exactly as nature intended.
