Likit Ice/Sport/Paddock

Hi everyone :)
So, In about two weeks my new horse will be arriving *fingers crossed* and the climate change will be huge for him (from europe to the middle east).

So, In order to make sure he stays healthy, I've been considering a few supplements. His old owner told me that he really likes himalayan rock salt, so i'll definitely be getting him one of those (Likit Ice).

However, because it is so hot here, I was considering getting him the electrolyte likit too- likit sport. Any comments/advice/ideas/reviews would be very much appreciated.
Same goes for the paddock likit.

Or any alternate suggestions would of course also be very much appreciated!
Thank you :)

The Likit Ice looks like a good choice for a salt block, though you may want to offer some loose salt as well, since he may need more salt than he can easily lick off while he's adjusting.

I'm not sure about the Likit Sport... my horse wouldn't touch the Likit treats at all.

Both the salt and electrolyte will be offered as regular salt blocks- in a box/on the ground so they're easy access :)

They can lick the Himalayan block just fine. When I bought my horses, out of a bad situation, they went through the first block in three days. Now they're hardly touching it.
For electrolytes I'd use the powdered or pelleted form and give only when I see the horse sweats a lot. The Himalayan block has salt and other minerals, so extra electrolytes might be an overkill, unles your horse will be working very hard.
Make sure he drinks enough and do the feed change as slow as possible. Don't know what kind if hay he us used to and what you have available. Same with grain.
Other than that I'd do the usual, watching feed and water intake, what's coming out and his temperature.

Mudpie LOVES the Himalayan salt licks! I'd stock up, because Mudpie went through them really quickly at first. He now licks it lots, but it lasts longer now. They're awesome because they don't dissolve in the rain, and even the most picky horses LOVE them. I just tied it up close to his water at about chest level, and he found it and loved it!
