Purchase: Rather than putting one of those large mineral or salt blocks on the ground for our horses to lick, we bought the Dura Flex Mineral Block Pan from Victoria Feeds - The Horse & Hound in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. It was around $12.95 Cdn without taxes.
Likes: Putting the mineral or salt block inside the pan stops dirt and dust from sticking to the block when it gets damp. This means less waste as once the block breaks down into chunks, it won't get covered in dirt so the horses will be able to eat more of it. There are little drainage holes in the bottom of the pan so the mineral or salt block won't be sitting in goober or water - it just drains out.
Dislikes: I can't think of anything to dislike.
Quality: Heavy duty plastic 10 quart mineral / salt block pan. Interior ribs lift and position the mineral / salt block so moisture can escape through drainage holes. This product is also impact-resistant and so far, has held up to 2 horses pawing and stomping at it. I think this is because while the sides of the pan are raised (and reinforced), the bottom of the pan sits so close to the ground that should a horse step in it, there's nowhere for it to give. Smart design.
Summary: I like how this pan is designed and would get one again once this one bites the dust - and the price is good, too. Our horses also seem to like that their salt lick isn't rolling away as they're trying to eat it!
