Re: RC: feeding horses eggs

In a message dated 5/3/99 11:41:32 PM Pacific Daylight Time, 

<< i was wondering if it was good to feed raw eggs to horses or if you should
 cook them before and if so how would you cook them? >>

Eggs contain a protein that binds one of the B vitamins.  Because of that, if 
eaten in sufficient quantity, raw eggs can cause a significant deficiency.  
It would likely be tough to get a horse to eat enough raw eggs to do that, 
but still, it is best to feed cooked eggs.  Not to mention the risk of 
diseases like Salmonella, etc., in raw eggs.  Just curious, though--why would 
you want to feed the horse eggs in the first place?
