Thanks Luvs, I ended up going with Triflex for him. Says it will take about 8 weeks to start showing any improvment, so we shall see! It has flax as well.
On the turnout, he does not get it during the day he just has his stall and run. But I go out there everynight and ride for about an hour or lunge for 15-20 minutes (easy work since he is getting back into shape) and then I hose his legs off for 15 minutes (for the wind puffs) and I let him loose in the arena for an hour of alone time. I think its really important they get alone time. He gets all his "play" spooks out and gets to investigate the scary parts of the arena.
Off topic, Yesterday it was so funny, I was sitting on the mounting block at one end of the arena (its a galloping size arena) reading and he was running around doing his thing. I looked up and he was trotting down the middle of the arena right at me, but there was a crossrail jump set up between us. So he stopped at the jump and walked his front legs over it and just stood there straddling the crossrails. I said what are you doing? And he just plowed right through the jump like a tank lol and came and stood next to me. Horses are so funny sometimes.
