True or False?
Ok so I heard adding one raw egg to your horses feed once a day will make your horse more shiny and that it Healthy. Is this true?

Eggs actually contain quite a bit of fat so I guess the fat will help.
Many old grooms would give their horses an egg a day. They also fed extracted hops from beer making.

A dollop of vegetable oil will also do it.

That's one I hadn't heard before... It might work, but there are many more herbivore-appropriate things you can add for shine. Oil, flaxseed, and BOSS come to mind.

I give my horse a little canola oil and flaxseed mixed into her grain and she has become quite the shiner :)

Yea^^ I used to give raw eggs to my Yorkies and they grew silky,shiny, soft coats! I haven't tried it with horses though...

I used the oils when on the show circuit.

Eggs did not travel well......:lol::lol::lol:

I just go with the flax seeds and (at times) with canola oil. That works nicely.
