Some time ago I posted a video of Speedy eating his beet pulp while pausing for regular licks of salt. When we moved to Barn Heaven, that routine stopped. I placed the salt lick as close to his beet pulp as I could, and I hung his bucket as usual. Nothing. I added another salt lick, but for nearly nine months I've seen no salt lick activity. And yes, it's warmer now, but it didn't matter before. It could have been raining cats and dogs in the middle of winter and Speedy still added the salt to his lunch.
Many months ago I hung a Himalayan salt lick above his bucket hoping it would entice him to return to the daily salt licking. About a week or so ago, I finally saw him repeat the salt licking during his lunch. On Friday, I happened to have my camera in my hand and caught several photos of him thoroughly enjoying his salty treat.
