Feeding & Storage Guide

Fourflax Equine Flax Seed Oil and Flax Seed Flake are both palatable and easy to administer.  When kept refrigerated the oil will remain fresh and tasty for up to 3 months, and the flake should last for 12 months if stored correctly!

  •   We recommend that once you have bought Flax Seed Oil for your horse, you keep it in the fridge.  This helps to maintain the quality and freshness of the oil.  It is also a good idea to place some kitchen towel underneath to catch any drips!  If the bottle is too big (such as the 5 Litre, 10 Litre or 20 Litre), then as long as the container is kept in a cool dark place such as a garage or tack shed, the oil will keep just fine.  The key is to keep it away from sunlight.
     
  •   With the Flax Seed Flake, again a cool dark place is important, so a garage or tack shed would be perfect.  It is important to keep the flake out of sunlight as this will reduce the quality.  The amount to feed depends on the desired results....the flake is high in protein and so should not be over fed.  As a general guide we suggest around one cup per day per horse, but it also depends on what else is being fed alongside it, and your specific nutritional requirements.
     
  •   For our oil, we suggest a daily feeding rate of 30ml-70ml of oil as a starting point.  This will help your horse to adjust to the oil, and is a perfect amount for general health and conditioning.  You should see results within 10-14 days, as long as the oil is fed every day.  The coat and hair will be softer and shinier and you may notice a difference in mobility and general behaviour.  If you have a miniature horse, you should be feeding roughly 30ml per day, a pony should be fed around 40ml per day, upwards to a horse of 17hh should be fed around 60ml per day.  If your horse is suffering with a specific inflammatory condition, such as a skin problem, arthritis or allergies, then you may wish to increase this amount, as the amount can depend on the severity of the condition and the individual.  If you are an endurance event rider or race horse owner and you wish to use the oil as an energy source, a daily feeding rate of between 130-200ml per day is suggested.  Remember, the key is to feed the oil every day for results to be measurable.
     
  •   The 1 Litre bottles come with pourers in the lid, which allows the oil to be poured over the daily food.  Our 10 Litre and 20 litre drums both come with handy drum taps, making it really easy to dispense and measure the oil.
