I buy the physillium(sp) husk at Wal-Mart, the Equate brand, it's fairly cheap. I give about 1/2-3/4 of a cup for 7 days out of the month.

I wonder if this is something that I need to worry about?? Do you have to have sandy soil or just dirt in general??

Equisyl Advantage, $44.00 a large container. I use it once a week-3 tablespoons per horse, and twice a year 3 days on 3 days off for a month. It really isn't too costly.

People with sandy soil need to be more proactive, but it wouldn't hurt anyone to make it part of their horses' health regimen. I do have sand, so have been using it religiously for years.

I buy the Equate brand psyllium at Walmart. It runs about $8.00 for a huge container and lasts me a month. I have 3 horses and they get it once a week. If you haven't given it before, it's best to start them on a 7 day program then switch them off to once a week.

It would be over in the pharmacy/health section. The brand name stuff for humans is Metamucil.
