Wanting that shiney coat- Flax seed?
I'm moving my guy to a much nicer stable, where I will get to have a say in what he's fed!
So, right now he's on ultium performance (which he DOES not need, he is a for-pleasure, light working, 1000 lb gelding quarter horse)
Anyways, his coat is somewhat dull, and only picks up a very slight sheen sheen with loads and loads of grooming, or a bath. And his mane and tail tend to be dry and unhealthy at the ends no matter HOW MUCH cowboy magic gets applied. (he's chestnut so this is kind of saddening to me, he has lovely coloring)
-he does not have worms
-he does not have any other medical issue
-he is 5 years old
I want to start adding flax seed to his food, which will NOT be ultium. Probably nutrena's safe choice or seminole wellness.
So does anyone else feed their horses just straight flax seed?
How much (in ounces or pounds) do you feed them?
He will be fed grain twice a day- so should he get flax seed with both meals, or just the morning one? Or just the evening one?
And anyone who uses Safe Choice, Seminole Wellness, or flax seed, I would love to see some pictures!- preferably if your horses are at least sometimes pastured.
