OUCH, MY STOMACH HURTS! May, 2013 – By Walt FriedrichHorses are grazers. We all know that. They would spend 24 hours out of every day, doing just that if they could. It’s quite natural, and the wild ones actually do that because their lifestyles allow it. Domestics – not so much.Oh, they would if they could, but only the lucky ones get to spend much time on pasture. A large percentage of domestics are routinely stalled overnight as well as part of the day, effectively removing them from graze for more than half of their lives!And that’s unfortunate for a number of reasons. Here’s a big one: ulcers.

Omega Grande Receives Good HorseKeeping Product Approval

Posted in News & Events|Omega Fields Horse Supplements & Treats on by omega

Omega Grande Receives Good HorseKeeping Product ApprovalWe used Grande on our 24-year-old retired roping horse, which has severe arthritis and periodic cases of diarrhea. Previously he had been on a total senior product supplement, as well as a mobility supplement. After 30 days of being on Grande I was able to discontinue any additional supplements – except for a teaspoon of aspirin daily. Bay has had a great winter, so far. He has been alert, sound, and riding better then ever. I am a true believer in the power of Omegas in keeping these older horses healthy and sound. Like my show mare that I put on Horseshine after testing it last fall, Bay will be on Grande for the rest of his life!

Posted in Horse Articles|Lipid Nutrition|Omega Fields Horse Supplements & Treats on by omega

In previous articles we have discussed the many benefits of feeding fats to horses. Typically these fats in feeds are vegetable oils, or even occasionally animal fats. We have not yet discussed specifically the type of fat in the diet. However, researchers in human and animal medicine have much information supporting the idea that specific types of fatty acids can provide numerous health benefits. This month we look at the science behind Omega-3 fatty acids and begin the process of understanding the terminology used.

Lipid Nutrition: Part 3, Benefit of Fats – Aid for Tying Up

Posted in Horse Articles|Lipid Nutrition|Omega Fields Horse Supplements & Treats on by omega

Last month we discussed the potential performance-enhancing benefits of feeding fats to exercising horses. These included a lowering of the thermal load on the horse, increasing its aerobic capacity, and perhaps even increasing their anaerobic energy stores in the form of muscle glycogen. Clearly, feeding fat has many advantages for the average horse. Fat can even be used as a nutritional management technique for horses that may suffer from repeated bouts of tying up. This month we will examine two particular types of muscle disorders which may actually benefit from the addition of fat to the diet.
