Chia seeds are sometimes added to equine diets as a source of fatty acids. Chia is high in the omega-3 fatty acid, ALA, which can provide some anti-inflammatory benefits.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,000 forages, feeds and supplements used in the equine diet. With our free diet formulation tool, this data can be used by horse owners and nutritionists to design balanced feeding programs for horses in their care.
