Hilton Herbs Himalayan Salt Licks are obviously distinctive by their colour, however it's not just this that sets them apart from other licks. We like to describe them as salt licks with 'nothing added and nothing taken out' and we believe they are one of the purest forms of salt (sodium chloride ) available.
Hilton Herbs Himalayan Salt Licks have been analysed and have been shown to be predominantly sodium chloride, with other trace elements such as potassium and magnesium which are vital for maintaining health, and iron which is responsible for the distinctive rose pink colour. 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.
Quality is always our policy - In line with all Hilton Herbs products our Himalayan Salt Licks are ethically sourced from a fully accredited supplier whose facilities comply fully with FDA/NASC feed safety standards.

Originally the native Yaks were used to transport the Himalayan rock salt from the mines down the mountains. Nowadays, tractors and trucks are used to take the salt from the mines down to the railhead from where they are transported to the major cities and ports of Pakistan.
My horses love this salt lick! They have tried to bite it, but it doesn't break! I gave one to my friend who has a horse that loves to chew on the wood as she is tacking up and instead of chewing on the wood, he licks the salt block. Even my one horse who is not a fan of salt licks, LOVES it!!!"

My horse LOVES this salt lick....I can definitely tell he has been enjoying it as he licks it down to the rope! I like the fact that this salt lick doesn't flake or crumble....it's very durable and stays on the rope until there's just no more left! Even though I can visibly tell my horse uses it , it lasts a good while!
