My boarder has a thing of vegi oil in her barn, I'm going to inform her about it being dangerous to feed them.

I use a product called Cool Calories on my mare that I rescued. We originally started the supplement because she needed to gain weight and all of those oils are so messy both to measure and in the buckets. Cool Calories is a very affordable (I think it's $26 for 60 + days) and not messy but offers the same benefits of the oils everyone is discussing. Like I said, I started it as a weight supplement but it has done amazing things to her coat. She is so shiny and her color is so bright that other owners in the barn started using the product just for the coat effect. It also doesn't cause any extra energy. Try it out if you want a shiny coat

I attached a pic of her coat so you could see. As a rescue it was VERY dull. Her weight still isn't completely there but this is how shiny her coat is now.

Think about it. Menopausal women take soy and soy products to help with hot flashes. Soy mimics estrogen in the body which is why it helps with menopause symptoms.

Knowing that.....do you really want anything that mimics estrogen in your horse's body? Not me.

This is why I do not feed any dog food with soy in it either.

Vege oil is a big no no lol
Vegetable oils in this form are poor-quality oils, all of which are polyunsaturated. This means that these oils are unstable with very poor resistance to heat and/or light. They easily release free electrons which are the culprits in free radical damage. The resulting cell damage is implicated in cancer, heart disease, and other chronic diseases related to aging and unless you buy organic many corn and canola crops are genetically modified as well.

Try a high Quality Racing oil made for race horses they are very high in Omega 3.
Or feed sunflower seeds.
