Hi, don't know what 'mannas pro flax thing' is, but flax/linseed is a good source of omega 3s & essential fatties, which is good for coat & hooves. You can either feed the ground seeds or cold pressed oil. But it loses a lot of it's value quickly after processing, especially in sunlight & heat. Therefore if you buy the oil, make sure it's in a lightproof container & kept cool, or feeding the whole seeds, grind them fresh daily.
Well balanced nutrition makes a horse less susceptible to bleaching and I think it's copper from memory that's particularly important for pigment. Therefore if your horse is prone to bleaching, I'd want to do a diet analysis & work out what he's deficient/imbalanced in.
