PREFER SMALLER QUANTITY or ORGANIC?
If you'd like smaller quantities of chia, or you prefer to shop on Amazon, this Organic Chia Seed is available in 2 lb tubs. Be sure and price compare though, as sometimes this product is cheaper.
JINI SAYS: Unlike flax, chia seed doesn't need to be ground prior to feeding. You can just feed it straight as is, or top-dressed on your regular feed.
If you find your horses are leaving their chia (or flax) at the bottom of their dish, this can be reduced or eliminated by drizzling flax oil or hemp oil on top of the chia seed
Great source of omega-3 and protein - but be aware that chia doesn't provide all the amino acids missing from a hay or grass diet, like alfalfa and flaxseed do. For this reason, some people feed flax seed and chia seed together, or sprinkle the chia seeds on top of alfalfa pellets. Either works!
