Omega 3, 6, and 9 Fatty Acids
“I can’t find Omega Fatty Acids in your ingredients. Don’t horses need this?”
Answer from Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Dr. Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
Essential fatty acids are very important for your horses. However, they are present in all of the feeds that you feed your horses in varying amounts. Omega 3, 6, and 9 are refer to the double bonds that the fatty acid chains contain. Different feeds contain different ratios of Omega 3 to Omega 6. In our products you feed such little rations/amounts (2-8 ounces) that if we did add extra fatty acids it would be significant in the horses overall diet. The grains and oils that you provide your horse are playing a much bigger factor in your horse’s need.
Hope this helps. Thank you for the question.
