Could you possibly mask the fish oil with the feed? They may not realize it is in there.

What an awesome source of information! Thanks DrumRunner for putting this together. Sure glad you posted on the Summit. I just started using the flaxseed oil on 2 of our mares to try it out and see if it works for them.

Thank you!

Francis, yes you can mask the fish oil in your horse's food. A really good way I've found to mask supplements or "nasty" stuff is applesauce.. Mine love it and will eat it with anything mixed it in.

Is there any brands of oil sold in the United States that are comparable to Performa 3?

I've never even heard of the Performa 3.. I looked it up and compared it to different things I've used.. When carrying on with Nutrena and Purina they only ever mentioned Omega 3 & 6... Anyway, I'm not sure why you couldn't feed a high in Omega 3 oil instead of it? Not all oils are higher in Omega 6, and the Omega 3 oils are usually balanced oils. Fish oil would probably be something you could try and benefit from. It has almost no Omega 6 and is packed full of Omega 3..

Anybody has looked into/tried Omega Horseshine?
I use it and it helped my bug-allergic mare a great deal apart from putting a wonderful shine on her and even my gray.
