Today I went to tractor supply and bought one little white salt block and one little red trace mineral block and put them in their holders. They are going to town on both of them! I also offer loose minerals also. Is to much of these two blocks gonna hurt them?

The problem is if they eat those and don't eat the loose mineral. They won't get enough minerals from those blocks.

I just went to bring them into the barn and when I went out there they were also eating the loose minerals. They always chow down on those also.

They don't need both, the loose mineral contains salt, and to provide both is an added expense and can compromise the health of your goats should they choose to go for the blocks and ignore the loose. I would forget the blocks and go for the loose mineral.
