Why do horses require Vitamin E supplementation?
Supplementation of natural vitamin E is essential for most horses because they cannot internally generate it like they can other vitamins. In order to receive adequate amounts of vitamin E naturally, horses typically need to be on grass pasture for at least 12 hours a day, year round. For horses on sand lots or restricted pasture, Vitamin E supplementation can be crucial for them to thrive.
Vitamin E is fat-soluble, therefore should be consumed with a healthy fat in order to be properly absorbed in the body.
