it is usually deficiant in most equine diets. It's very important and even more so for young horses still developing.
Most feeds you buy use cotton seed, which while not a grain (always good to eliminate gran products) is not a good source foe lysine. Soy bean meal is a good sourse for it, but supliments are probably used more.
Humans need lysine too, but meats are our best sources for it (which like omega 3, etc... is easier for us to absorb from meat than from plant sources)
They're always going to be bigger and stronger so you better always be smarter. (One of my grandfather's many pearls of wisdom)
