You're welcome!! You can really just about find it anywhere, like vitamin stores and such, I know Walmart carries the capsules. I think the best way to go, and probably the cheapest, is to just order a large bottle of the oil online. If your horse doesn't like the oil you can always try a flax seed supplement and it works just as well.

Actually I'm not really sure.. I still like rice bran and I feed it, I just make sure I balance it out with another oil that's high in omega 3's.. It's definitely good stuff and it does boost weight gain really well. My vet recommended it and likes it also but did say it's just about balancing it out.. I'll try to find out more..
This is the rice bran I use when feeding it. http://www.tractorsupply.com/weight-...1-gal--5072468
