Salt Blocks for Horses - Not Just a Summer Concern

salt blocks for horses and livestock

In hot, summer months as we reach for our Gatorade we are likely to remember that our horses need a salt block or even electrolytes if they are performing hard. However, horses are just as much in need (or perhaps even more so) during the cold winter months. When water sources are cold, horses tend to drink less. Keeping free choice salt blocks or bricks available at all times can encourage horses to keep drinking in every season. If you have a way to offer your horse warmer water that is ideal, but if not make sure that the water is fresh and clean.

Curbside Pick Up Available at Coolhorse in Amarillo


You may have heard that some of the biggest chain stores are about to (or have recently begun to) offer curbside pickup. Simply place your order ahead of time, let the store put the order together, pay for it online, and all you have to do is swing in and pick it up. Almost sounds too good to be true. But, you know what? This service has been available here at Coolhorse for a long time.
