Vitamin and mineral licks
These can be very useful if you have a number of horses sharing a paddock.

You’ll find many different brands available in your local feed shop including Orignal Horsily that contains vitamins, minerals and trace elelments to balance any deficieinces in your horse’s grazing and forage.
