iO Linseed Oil Raw contains omega 3 fatty acids.

Horses and Ponies need both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, they are essential building blocks for healthy cell development.  These fatty acids have to come from food because, like minerals and protein, animals cannot make them in their body.  Their natural diets contain a balance of one part omega-3 and two parts omega-6. However most major ingredients in horse feed including oats, wheat, maize and soya have a lot of the omega-6 which is inflammatory and in addition many people feed other vegetable oil which further unbalances horses' metabolism. This means can't get enough of the anti-inflammatory omega-3 to provide the essential balance for healthy cell and hormone production.   All horses, especially those in hard work,  breeding animals, old or young stock need extra omega-3.

Linseed oil is the only vegetable oil which has more omega-3 than omega-6, so it is the only oil that can rebalance the diet. Other vegetable oils make imbalance worse and can result in stiff joints, scurfy itchy skin, poor attention, spookiness and other typical symptoms of fatty acid imbalance.

Why Linseed Oil is the only vegetable oil you can feed to rebalance the fats in your horse’s diet:

Rebalancing

This table shows why sunflower, corn, olive, rapeseed and soybean oils do not do the same job as linseed oil. All these other vegetable oils should be thought of as just adding calorific value to the horse’s diet.  If these oils are fed, additional linseed oil should always be fed to maintain the natural balance the horse would get in the wild from grazing natural grasses and herbs. Omega 3 fatty acids help improve the glossiness of the coat, may help to eliminate skin problems, and may also aid with

  • urinary infections
  • digestive function
  • inflammatory conditions
