Corta-Flx - Powder vs Pellets?

My trainer had some leftover Corta-Flx powder and gave it to my QH for the past month or so, it seems to have really helped, so I want to continue her on it.

Is there a difference between the powder and the pellets? I cannot do the liquid, the barn isn't heated so it would freeze. We ran out of the powder today, so I've got to buy more locally, tomorrow morning so she doesn't go without but it's looking like long-term mail-ordering the pellets may be cheaper and as I'm going to start my gelding on this as well, I'm all for saving a bit if it would be the same.

I use the pellets. Love them. Can feed them alone (don't need to mix with feed) and the horses will scarf them up like candy. Since mine are pastured and don't need grain, it's really nice to be able to do that with the pellets.

Ok, if the horses eat the pellets without grain, that's what I'm getting. My gelding doesn't need grain but would be ecstatic to get something in his grain bowl since his neighbors get grain.

Exactly. My herd doesn't need any extra calories but my 30 year old mare needs the supplement. So, she gets her dose of supplement out of my hand, if necessary, and the others get a pat on the nose or a cookie. So convenient. I was kind of surprised how much they like it but they really seem to think it's tasty!
