Yeast Culture and Linseed Oil

I recently heard a boarder say that yeast culture and linseed oil is really good to feed horses. Care to explain what they do? (Sorry for all the silly questions)

Linseed and Flaxseed are the same thing. Many people feed flax (either whole, ground, or in oil form) to add omega 3 to the horses diet. Flax has a 4:1 ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 supplying approximately 6.4 or so grams of omega 3 per ounce. With many horses having limited to no access to pasture grass and also with some being on a diet high in omega 6's (from grain) omega 3 supplementation is important. It also has anti-inflammatory properties, especially helpful for arthritic horses. A lot of vitamin/mineral supplements use flax as their base.
Yeast culture is supposed to aid in hindgut function. It probably has other benefits, but that is the only one I know of without looking into it further.
Here are a few interesting links on yeast culture-

make sure of the type of oil you use. some linseed oil is used as leather cleaner. lol..
brewers yeast states it helps digest fiber in the hind gut. I am planning on trying it. I jsut got some flax seed - organic ground seed at walmart fairly cheap, and it would be higher quality than what woudl be used for horses, has to pass the standards for human use. ;)
