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 :)

vegitable oil is what my vet said to do with out mft to build weight and so ya know one gets it they all do... it works! my horse will blind you in summer!
True...I used egg with my show horses.
Use it now with my show dog.
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.
