    You have to ask the feed store if they can get it for you - usually they can order it.

    To everyone else...Where do you get the bulk flax seed in enough quantities to feed a horse? I don't think I have ever seen it at the feed stores.

    You can get it at health food stores. You don't really need to buy it in bulk unless you're giving it to several horses. I bought a three-pound bag and I'm feeding it to two horses. I've had it for about two months, and I'm only halfway through it. I give them each one handful once a day.

    Thumbs up for flax seed! I have my mare on it, and it works awesome!

    I use corn oil on Solon since he's a draft and the side effect is a super shiny smooth coat.

    We use the supplement MiraCoat. It works great on our horses!

    I'm a lover of the Cocosoya. It's always been my top choice, and probably always will be. But I've recently become a huge fan of ground flax. My boss feeds it to her horses and they look incredible. One of her mares is black and she has the glossiest coat I've ever seen on a darker horse!

    Conola oil is the key for my guys!!! :) A small amount of corn oil drizzled on top of their grain then mixed in.

    I get ground flax seed at Winco from their bulk food section. Don't know if you have them where you are or not. It's pretty inexpensive, $2 a lb. It's much more expensive when you buy it from a feedstore.
