JINI SAYS: This hemp seed topper is very similar to the hemp hearts (or hemp nuts) you'd buy for human usage. The difference is hemp hearts are just the seeds, whereas this topper contains the seeds and the hulls. Humans don't like the hulls because they're these tiny crunchy bits, but they're nutritious (minerals and insoluble fiber) and ideal for horses.
Every single one of my 11 horses will devour this topper straight on it's own. But I usually just sprinkle it on top of their regular feed dish (In this order: pure alfalfa pellets or chopped hay, High Point Daily Nutrients for Grass/Hay Fed Horses, a tablespoon of seaweed powder, a couple scoops of the hemp seed topper and a drizzle of flax oil or hemp oil). If you're feeding the recommended amount of this topper, you don't need any additional oil, but I usually feed less. You know your horse best, so do what's right for your horse's need, age, activity levels, etc.
This hemp seed topper contains all the essential amino acids necessary for a horse to properly utilize the protein in their grass or hay diet (which are incomplete proteins - missing essential amino acids). It also contains omega-6, in addition to omega-3 (typically in a 2:1 or 3:1 ratio). Although many sources tag omega-6 as pro-inflammatory, my own body/experiences says this is not so. When I went looking for reasons why, I found this key piece of information:
Dr. Juliet Getty says that hemp has "both essential fatty acids, linoleic and alpha linolenic acid (ALA), as well as a special fatty acid known as gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA belongs to the omega 6 family, but unlike the omega 6 found in soybean oil, it reduces inflammation rather than promoting it."
