Details

The Omega-3 supplement to help maintain a shiny healthy coat, strong solid hooves and top performance for horses in all life stages.

The premium Omega-3 supplement made with stabilized, ground, whole flaxseed. Omega Horseshine is a powerful bountiful source of stable milled flax, rich in Omega-3!

New & Improved Formula includes 10 mg of Biotin per ½ cup serving, chelated minerals and added Lysine for better uptake

The Omega-3 stabilized ground flax seed supplement for horses – made with stabilized and freshly milled flax – to help maintain a shiny healthy coat, strong solid hooves, and top performance – for horses in all life stages. Omega Fields provides the best stabilized ground flax that is stabilized using Pure Glean stabilizing technology. Dry scaly itchy skin, joint pain/inflammation, poor hoof growth, allergies, pregnancy, etc. may indicate a deficiency of Omega-3 essential fatty acids in the diet. To overcome these deficiencies the horse may need to get an increased serving size (up to 2 to 3 cups) of Omega Horseshine every day, short term.

Pregnancy is a condition associated with Omega-3 deficiency because of the foal’s fast-growing brain, eye, and organ cell use up all available Omega-3s from the mare.

All flaxseed used in Omega Fields’ products is milled to Global Food Safety Initiative standards for human consumption, employing a rigorous microbial reduction process and utilizing our Pure Glean stabilization technique for long shelf life. The flaxseed is certified to BRCGS Standards, and guaranteed shelf stable for a minimum of one year under (many have an 18M shelf life) ambient storage conditions – no refrigeration or special packaging required!

Omega Horseshine is also a nutritious alternative for psyllium husks to help prevent sand colic. Omega Horseshine contains a high mucilage (soluble fiber) content that swells and takes a gel-like consistency, flax mucilage traps and suspends sand, carrying it out of the GI tract. Omega Horseshine acts to buffer excess acid and aids in the stabilization and modulation of blood glucose.

If your horse were out on pasture with all-natural grasses and plants of your region, they would naturally be supplementing their diet with Omega-3 –with plants high in Omega-3, such as purslane. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case, and if you are lucky enough to have pasture for your horse – it is not natural grassland. It is necessary to supplement your horses’ diet with Omega Horseshine – Omega-3 rich ground stabilized flaxseed.

One of the most common concerns among horse owners is how they can improve their horse’s hair coat to appear sleek and shiny. Many people already have a basic understanding that supplementing flaxseed in their horse’s diet improves hair coat quality and appearance by providing essential fatty acids (omega-3 and omega-6) or EFAs. But what many people don’t know are the benefits that flaxseed provides in addition to making the hair coat show quality.

Spring provides horses a chance to shed their winter hair coat, eat green grass, and bask in the sun, but many times it also means pesky insects, inevitably resulting in pruritus or itchy skin. Perhaps one of the most common causes of pruritus, are Culicoides insects, commonly known as midges, and what’s often referred to as ‘sweet itch’ (1). These insects cause a type-I hypersensitivity reaction, which would be a similar reaction a human experiences after exposure to poison ivy. Pruritus causes extreme discomfort and in some cases may result in horses causing self-mutilation while trying to alleviate discomfort.

There is evidence that supplementing EFAs help prevent and treat pruritus, whether it be caused by Culicoides or another ailment that results in seasonal pruritus. EFAs work at the cellular level by targeting the inflammation associated with dermatitis. When a type-1 hypersensitivity reaction occurs it is the body’s overreaction to a foreign stimulus. Flaxseed is one of the highest natural vegetable sources containing EFAs which ultimately shutdown the inflammatory cascade and reduce the severity of the skin’s reaction.  In other words, flaxseed enables immunosuppression and thereby reducing the pruritus that results from insect exposure (2).
