Horses require a source of essential fatty acids every day since their bodies cannot product them. Naturally found in healthy, growing pasture grasses, these important fatty acids are no longer available in hay once fresh grasses are cut and stored to make hay.
The essential fatty acid composition of chia seeds mimics those found in fresh pasture: 4 to 1 ratio of omega 3 (alpha linolenic acid) to omega 6 (linoleic acid).
It is important to pay attention to the level of omega 3s and 6s in the diet since most horses get their fat from soybean oil or other vegetable oils that are very high in omega 6s. Too much omega 6s and not enough omega 3s will increase inflammation and pain.
Please see the articles, "Chia Seeds - Nature's Tiny Miracle" for a discussion on the benefits of chia.
Feed 1 scoop per day for a full sized horse at maintenance. Horses with health issues or in hard work may benefit from 2 or more scoops per day.
Organic Chia Seeds are high in soluble fiber and may be used at 2 scoops (4 ounces) per day for a week each month to assist horses who consume significant quantities of sand while grazing.
Each 1/3 cup scoop provides slightly more than 2 ounces by weight and provides nearly 12000 mg of Omega 3s and 3500 mg of Omega 6s.
Note: To compare this to Nutra Flax, two-ounces (one 1/3 cup scoop) of Organic Chia Seeds is comparable in omega 3 and omega 6 content of 2 ounces (one 1/2 cup scoop) of Nutra Flax.
