    Well, my beloved boy is going to be 25 on March 30th. How time flies! Thank goodness, he’s held up well, but I’m doing all I can to keep him happy and comfortable. Lately, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of recommendation to feed flax seed to older horses, and you can buy stabilized ground flax, but recently I got a great deal on a huge bag of whole flax, so now I’m wondering a couple of things: Of the folks here who feed flax to their horses, in what form do you feed it, and why? How much do you give, and how many times per day? Do any of you buy regular whole flax seed and grind it yourself? How long do you keep the ground stuff, do you have to do it before every feeding, or can you do a bunch once a week? I paid $5 for that monstrous bag , couldn’t pass it up the deal, but now am not sure exactly what to do with it… Gotta do something soon, though, because my husband has already gotten into the bag like a big rat, and started sprinkling it on his breakfast cereal! Any suggestions?
