To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My horses immediately were attracted to these versus the white salt blocks nearby. Most lick and leave, but one draft gelding has figured how to trap the hanging block against the wall. This lets him bite off chunks to crunch on and eat. The block will definitely crack into edible pieces. This is the same guy who head butts his slow feed hay net until all the hay drops out on the ground, so he can eat it all at once.
I have a few deer that visit my yard on a daily basis. I noticed one of them always licking the side of my brick garage and decided maybe it would like a nice salt block instead. The first couple days after I put it out, the deer showed no interest in it at all, and would just sniff it and walk away. I was starting to think I'd wasted my money. But then, the deer suddenly changed their mind and sometimes I would see two of them licking at it at the same time. I bought it on May 16th, and now, on July 4th, it's almost completely gone, although rain and humidity helped dissolve a lot of it as well.
I purchased one of these for my daughter's bunny rather than buying one of the typical salt wheels. I compared prices before purchasing and found that the standard salt wheels were around $5 for 4 ounces (or $1.25 per ounce) but this 4.4 pound (70.4 ounces) block was only $8.50 (approximately 12 cents per ounce). This is definitely the economical choice at less than one-tenth of the price!
I like that it is a solid piece versus a pressed cake. The cylindrical block we received is 4 1/4 inches long and 4" wide. We tied it up in the corner of his cage and,all is well. I would purchase another if and when we need one.
UPDATE: I bought 2 of these 3 years ago for two rabbits that are housed separately. Although both salt licks are definitely smaller, the bunnies are still on their original blocks (the rope lasted less than a year but was easy to replace). The larger rabbit will probably need a new salt block by summer’s end but the smaller rabbit still has half a block left. I purchased a third one for my son’s bun-bun a year and a half ago and she seems to prefer these over her old salt spool, too. They are definitely long lasting and price efficient.
My horses love these hanging salt blocks. I have (for their licking pleasure) regular 50# white & mineral blocks but the one that holds their daily attention are these hanging blocks. I have been reading that this is just dirty salt with impurities but whatever it is they love it.
I did not rate the flavor. My level of commitment to my horses does not rise to tasting their food nor do I presume to know what is tasty to a horse and what is not. What I CAN report is that each stall in my barn has one of these hanging in it. My minidonks cannot walk past one without licking almost ritualistic. I got quite a kick out of watching them line up behind my 42 yo minidonk.
