Podcast #019 – The Role Of Oils In Horses

The Equine Practice Inc, The Horse's Advocate

Oils and fats seem to confuse a lot of horse owners, and because of this, terminology such as “Omega 3 oils” are used a lot but without understanding what they are. As a result, horses are fed a lot of oils with good intentions for their health. But does it?

This podcast reviews fatty acids, especially saturated fats, MUFSA’s and PUFA’s. It also goes over where horses get their fat out in the “wild.” It is not fish or fish oils, flax or other seeds or seed oils. Once understood, horse owners will then understand what to feed horses to get the fats they need to survive and thrive.
