Feeding pysillium husk

Does anyone feed this who is not on sandy soil? Was just wondering if it's a good idea to feed a low dose or not really needed?

It’s often recommended as a kind of gut balancer to help with things like faecal water syndrome, so there is benefits to using it other than for sand removal 🙂 if there is little chance the horse has ingested sand though I wouldn’t feed it for sand removal, I’d just test for sand in the faeces (tbh I do this rather than feed it routinely now and I am on sand)
