Coconut Oil as feedstuff for Horses -
Coconut Oil is a Medium Chain Triglyceride and offers benefits over traditionally fed oils (Soy/Rice/Sunflower etc) such as fast absorption, higher conversion to energy, metabolic stimulisation, long shelf life & palatability.
Supplementing the diet with a percentage fats in place of starchy grains may also reduce tying up on hard working horses on high grain diets or limited grazing. Coconut oil may also have anti-viral & anti-fungal properties.
Omega 3 - Coconut Oil is NOT a source of Omega 3, but does contain some Omega 6 fatty acids. Horses on poor grazing diets require a balance of Omega 3, 6 & 9 for optimum performance & health.
Coconut Oil is well known for its skin & hair conditioning benefits, and can produce beautiful coats very quickly when used as a feed supplement. It is a highly energising oil feed, so if extra energy is not required we recommend feeding only in small doses.
