Question
Hello Lyn. can i add 2 raw eggs in my horse feed per meal? are raw eggs good for horses?

Answer
Rohit,

I'm going to answer both your questions in this response.  No and no. Neither eggs nor milk should be fed to horses.  They are not what the horse's digestive tract is designed to process.  Horses are forage eaters, that's what they are biologically designed to eat.  I cannot imagine why you would even want to give a horse either milk or eggs.  So don't.
