Where's your Salt Lick?

A little known fact but the position of your salt lick in the paddock does make  a difference!

Researchers in Alberta, Canada, discovered that the position of the salt lick in the field influences the consumption rate. The highest consumption rates were observed if the licks were placed in an area where horses spend most of their time hanging out. However, if licks were located next to or close to the water source then very little of the lick was consumed.
