Ivy contacted Saracen through our Feed Advice Form service in November. She was looking for advice for her 14.1hh, Connemara, Smokey Diamond who was eventing at novice level. Smokey is entering into his veteran years so Ivy was looking for something to make sure he was getting all of his daily requirements as well as hopefully boosting his energy levels slightly.

Impaction colic can be a worry for many horse owners when the temperatures drop as horses typically drink less, this on top of an increased amount of dry forage (hay/haylage) being offered due to the snow or turnout being restricted can lead to the impaction of ingested material in the intestinal tract
EO.3™ is a unique source of omega-3 fatty acids, derived from marine sources that can help maintain an optimal omega-3: omega-6 fatty acid ratio in equine diets. These essential fatty acids cannot be made by the horse and therefore have to be supplied in the ration. EO.3 is a more readily available source of omega-3’s to the horse than linseed or vegetable oil is and is therefore more effective. The form of omega 3 oil that is in vegetable oil has to be converted in the horse's body into the form that can be used. The omega 3 oil that is in fish oil is already in the form the horse can use so does not need to be converted, making it more bio-available.
