Whatever your reasons. —— no — just — NO! To feeding BOSS to a horse -
1. There are credible articles that discuss the excessively high Omega-6 in BOSS with zero ratio to the healthy (and much preferred) Omega-3 that flax offers.
High Omega-6 exacerbates any type of inflammation, especially metabolic issues.
2. Do you know the differences between the types of Black Oil Sunflower Seeds that are ALL designed for birds?
2.1. Do NOT feed striped sunflower seeds to horses.
2.2. Do NOT feed anything to a horse whereby the bag states the seeds have “bird kote” on them.
2.3. just don’t feed BOSS at all; wait for the flax to come in. I hate DuMor products but I would much rather see someone buy a bag of DuMor Omega-3 from TSC, than feed BOSS ———
I cannot believe we are 20-some years down the road from when people thought BOSS was the way to go, found it wasnt
A Good Horseman Doesn't Have To Tell Anyone; The Horse Already Knows.
