Not all fats (or fatty acids) are created equal–and positive health benefits are not associated with each kind of fat–it is important to understand the differences between saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. By altering the ratio of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in the diet, you can potentially confer beneficial health effects to the horse.
Forages, which make up the bulk of a horse’s diet, typically contain only a small amount (2-3 percent) of crude fat; however, forages are naturally higher in omega-3 fatty acids than pro-inflammatory omega-6 fatty acids.
