Well, we are basically saying the same thing,When I said to supplement essential fatty acids, it was understood that you would use a source with the correct omega 3 to 6 ration as recommended by equine nutritionists like Dr Lori Warren
Omega 3 is actually high in grass, but fat source,period , is low in hay, thus use supplement a fat source like flax, canola oil or fish oil, which does have high omega3 to 6, but you are supplementing both, in the right amount!
You don't use corn oil or sunflower seeds,(Boss ) as was often done in the past, as they have mainly omega 6
Agree....however the Omega 3 in grass hay disappears quickly although pasture grass is normally high in it. For horses, I prefer whole flax seed because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
