Re: Ground Flax addition to feed


Hi Laura,
Ground flax is recommended to boost the Omega-3 fats in your horse’s diet.  It’s ratio of O-3 to O-6 fats is similar to that of the grass they normally eat.  With the amount we feed, I don’t think it will make much difference to the calorie intake.  I don’t know any reason not to add it to soaked feed.
