Can my horse overeat on Redmond Rock?
Yes, and no. You will notice that we say on the label, “Provide fresh,clean water at all times.” This is for good reason. Many horses eat alot of Redmond Rock when they first see it.

Without access to water, your horse will run into trouble, andnot just from eating salt.
