Re: how much Pergolide? Now coconut


As to whether horse should get medium chain fats like coconut oil, they didn't evolve eating coconuts or meat. But....
I fed copra for a couple years and my horses did well on it.  I put coconut oil in my protein shake. Medium chain fats are not digested like other saturated fats and can be easily used for energy.

All that said, this group does not approve of their use.

There is a long list of pros for saturated fats.  Is there a difference between the human and equine liver?  Or is it in the amounts consumed where there is a breaking point?
