Use it as a healthy alternative to candy balls to keep horses occupied.
WILL NOT DISSOLVE
Our solid rock holds up better in wet weather and humidity than manufactured pressed salt blocks.

TIPS FOR USING REDMOND ROCK ON A ROPE
Here are some simple tips to introduce and help your horse get used to Rock on a Rope (infographic on web page)
1. TIE IT AGAINST A POST
Tying Redmond Rock on a Rope tight against a post makes it easier for a horse to lick.
2. GIVE IT SOME SLACK
Giving the rope some slack creates a healthy alternative to candy balls and boredom busters in the stall.
3. TIE IT TO A FENCE
Tying Rock on a Rope to a fence outdoors keeps it out of the dirt and mud.
4. TIE IT LOWER ON A GATE
Tying it lower on a gate allows horses to maintain the posture they naturally assume when foraging.
5. USE A LITTLE MOLASSES
Pouring molasses on Rock on a Rope will encourage horses to lick if they aren’t initially interested.
WHAT MAKES REDMOND ROCK DIFFERENT FROM HIMALAYAN
Is Redmond Rock a better choice than Himalayan rock? Yes, we think so! 100% of our mineral salt is mined and packaged right here in the USA. We kind of like that. Redmond Rock also contains around 7% natural mineral content compared to 3% of most Pakistani-mined Himalayan rock.

Unrefined Mineral Salt
I bought 3 salt blocks a 7-10 pound for my 2 beef calves, and two 3-4 pound ones for my lambs. They just love them! The only problem I have is the ropes keep coming untied. Maybe I need to learn a new knot but I just tie them back up.
My horses love these. Always a good size.
My horses love these rocks. The two mares go through a 5 lb rock in a couple of weeks and one of the geldings uses his up about once a month. Some of them don't have a hole in a good place and there is waste of the rock as a result. It is best if the rope is right in the middle.
Hi Donna, We are thrilled that your horses are loving their Redmond Rock salty treat and we appreciate your feedback. We are committed to you and your animals and your observation has already been discussed and passed along to our team. Please watch you mail for our thank you to you and your horses! :)
My horses absolutely love the Redmond Rock on a rope! If I accidentally run out and grab another brand; my horses literally slow their intake of minerals. Once I put up another Redmond Rock on a rope, they are back to licking throughout the day! Obviously Redmond provides excellent ingredients but my horses prefer the taste as well! Redmond all the way!
Hanging this on the fence post makes it easy and convenient for the animals. They love it.
Not sure there's anything cuter than the image I have in my mind of your little miniature donkeys and their long tongues enjoying a salty treat hanging on the fence :) Welcome to the Redmond Family!
