We use 'Red' Rockies, for copper, used to be actually coloured, but apparently EU wasn't happy, so they are white(ish).

My adults have (in addition to the white/red Rockie) also a Zinc rockie (helps with skin issues). The Zinc one comes only in the big version (and a pack of two). But we have put thick fencing wire through the hole and looped them over the hurdles. Works well and the goats use both licks!


White (previously red) Rockie is the minimum needed, as said above.

Mine had a yellow Rockie because I didn't know the difference when I bought it and I wasn't going to waste it. It was a huge one so lasted years.
