Flax seed oil

Any way I could get a solid flaxseed oil for my horse from the grocery store?
Anyone know of any brands that work well for horses and humans?

Solid as in not liquid, or solid as in good quality?

You won't be able to find one that's not liquid and still even remotely pure flaxseed oil. If you're just looking for a good quality one, any of them should do- check the label to make sure flaxseed oil is the only ingredient and that it's not past the expiration date.

Do you have a Walmart near you ? They have oil, capsule, and dry. I just got flax seed dry for 7.88 .

By dry, do you mean just the seeds themselves (either whole or ground) or do you mean they have a dry form of the oil?

Dry flax seed . I did not want the oil in case it had a funny taste. THey have the caplets of oil also. I plan on using some of the flax seed for myself .. but have not tried it yet. If I don't like it, I can use it for the horses they are older and could use a little help in shedding. No not cushings, just old.

They are cold-millled organic ground flax seeds. Not to horrid of taste. 1 to 4 tablespoons in water are the directions. Or in oatmeal , yogurt etc..
I wont take that much, and even not give 4 to the horses. ;)
The Human foods and meds are more refined than any for animals .

I tried ground flax for myself, sprinkled over my cereal or in smoothies. It was OK with Honey Nut Cheerios (since it already has a nutty taste) but I felt like I was probably losing a lot in the milk and I didn't care for the texture in the smoothies. I take fish oil capsules now

Solid as in "great". My error, sorry that was unclear.
I want something to shine up his coat, it is dull as the cloudy skies out here in Oregon.

I know of people who would buy oil at the local grocery store and mix it in with feed. I just don't know what is an acceptable brand, and IF this is acceptable to use a human brand rather than a horse brand...

Thankies. **Note below the not-so-stunning, dull coat of my coww :(.... working on it... I want him to glisten like a gem.. tehehe.
