mary anne: I too didn't respond because I had no idea. Codliver oil...yuck...does your mare actually eat that stuff??? My grandma used to spoon feed that stuff to us when we complained we didn't feel well and she knew we were just trying to get out of chores! LOL! There are various oils out there that are are marketed under suppliments. Personally, I just use corn oil with my horses, pregos or not.

I use Flax seed oil. I wouldnt use cod oil, its animal based and horses eat plant origin. JMO.
I either grind my own flax seed and add it to their feed or I use the Flax seed oil you can but at the Vitamin Isle. It works excellent and it gives them the omegas they need, shines them up like a new penny.

Hey Holly: I was wanting to give my horses flax for their coats too, but it is so expensive. How much do you pay for the oil verses the seed? I found the cheapest way to buy it is in a 50lb bag of the whole flax seed which I heard is kind of pointless to feed it to them whole because they don't really chew it up, and therefore don't get any benefit from it. Therefore I heard that the best way to feed it to them is to grid it up, correct? So my next question is, "How long does it keep for after it has been ground up?" Should I just grind up what I need each day, and how much do you feed your horses? Sorry for all the questions, I'm anal that way.

I feed mine anywhere from a 1/4 cup to a 1/2 cup depending on what I feel like. you can store it almost indefinately in your fridge or freezer or airtight container since i live in ar its the deep freeze. try a health food store that sells in bulk

Jenny do you grid up yours and then freeze it? My feed store sells a 50lb bag for about $50.00.

I buy mine by the 3 lb bag and its the whole seeds. Its 3 dollars. I grind each day in my mini hand held coffee grinder.
I only use a tbs a day per mare but I have minis.
I also use the oil in the capsule and I give one a day on a horse cookie I poke it and squeeze the oil on the cookie.
