Flax Appeal is a high-energy top dressing that provides elevated levels of fat and protein primarily from flaxseed and soybean. Flax Appeal is formulated for weight gain, horses in light to heavy work, or if omega-3’s are needed.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,400 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.

Feeding Rate: For best results feed from 1/4 to 2 lbs. per day added to the horse’s regular grain ration. Flax Appeal can be added as a top-dress to the horse’s regular ration or mixed with soaked beet pulp. Introduce gradually. Amount of feed required is dependent on the body condition, the metabolism and the type of activity that the horse is used for. Note: Warmblood and Draft type horses may require different amounts from light horse breeds.
