[endurance] fat confusion

okay - I'm really confused now - I thought the best source of fat for a
hard-working horse was corn or vegetable oil but the latest TB has an
article about fat for endurance horses. At the end of the article it
mentions animal fat as the best option - considering shelf life, cost,
etc....I thought animal fat was the one kind of fat we wanted to avoid as
it was not as easily or efficiently used by the horse's body during work.

Somebody please set me straight....
