[RC] Oats - k s swigart


You asked:

Do you feed whole oats, rolled, ??

I have fed crimped, steam rolled, and hulless oats...and whatever many feed 
manufacturers use in their formulations.? Oh yeah, and I have let my horses 
graze on wild oats (which grow plentifully on the Southern California 
hillsides) and have been known to feed oat hay--both the hay and the wild 
growing grass have seed heads on them and my horses have eaten the hay and the 
grass during this stage of its development.

What brand?

Eqvalana (?sp?)?makes the hulless ones (which I think have had the bran removed 
so they many not have any gamma-oryzanol in them for all I know).
The crimped and steam rolled oats are usually Ace Hi (or Kelley, which is the 
same company)
The 4-way (corn, oats, barley, molasses) is usually either Kruse or Ace Hi

I used to use Ace Hi performance feed (until they stopped making it); I have 
used Nutrena XTN (which also contains oats) but Nutrena feed dealers aren't 
close enough for me to use it regularly, Purina Omalene 200 (which also 
contains oats); and Kruse's new Equine Advantage Elite (which also contains 
oats).

I don't feed Triple Crown, not because of the Yucca thing, but because it is 
ridiculously expensive.
