I also use whole flaxseed.
In addition, I use it with my other farm critters. It makes a huge difference and most people who see my non-horse animals are amazed at how shiny their coats or fiber is.

I haven't tried flax oil, but we feed 1/2 cup to a cup of ground flax to most of the horses here daily. If I am in a hurry I have just tossed in a handful of whole seeds. But when I started feeding flax there was so much to read about having to boil or grind the seeds first, now I am just in the habit of griding them up. If you do grind, it should be done fresh daily.
