question about Psyllium

What is the recommendation it comes in pellets, powder, and physllium seed husk whole. I am going to start my horses on it but they all get their grain soaked into a mash. Any input???

I use it as a powder type stuff. I've had no problems with it.

I think it depends on your horse. I use the pellet form because that's what the store had. The problem with powder is your horse can snort into his grain bucket and therefore, snort away a bunch of powder. If you soak everything, I don't think it will matter if you use the pellets or the powder.
