IS MY HORSE GETTING ENOUGH AMINO ACIDS
“Hello, I feed my 3 horse and mini oats, Cocosoya oil, and Horse Guard. I’m wondering if the Horse Guard has a sufficient amount of amino acids in it? ”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
When fed a high-quality hay with the oats, oil, and Horse Guard, your horses are receiving sufficient amino acids.
There are only few times that you would have to worry about insufficient amounts of amino acids. A young horse or skinny horse on low-quality forage would be most likely lysine deficient.
