Resource Library - Dietary Fat
Fat, otherwise known as "lipids" is a major dietary contributor to your horse's overall health. Unlike carbohydrates and proteins, fat provides more than twice the amount of calories, making is a great way to fuel your horse's energy needs.
But not all fat is the same. Some fatty substances can cause pain and inflammation and slow healing and recovery. Others can reduce inflammation, regulate immune function, and favorably impact metabolic conditions.
