Do you feed oil? What kind and why?
The title says it all.
I'm feeding my mare, who needs to gain quite a few pounds, coconut oil. I started with Cocosoya, but since I can't find it in any feed store, I switched to just coconut oil that I can buy in the grocery store. I loved the Cocosoya though. It put such a nice shine on Sky.
My reason for feeding oil is weight gain, and read that coconut oil is good for putting fat on a horses back, which is where Sky really needs it. But if there's an oil that is better for weight gain in general, I would definitely switch.
So what oil do you feed and why? Also, how much? I give Sky 6oz a day but wonder if I should give her more.
