View Full Version : Horse feed
01-21-2007, 06:01 PM
Someone suggested to me that if I want raw oat groats go to the feed store and buy a bag of just oats for horses. He said they must be raw because when you drop them on the ground they grow. Hmmm.... might be an idea. Wonder what all they go through before they get to the co-op? Maybe someone who has horses knows?

Weird, I was thinking the same exact thing today!
My mom actually brought it up, when I was talking about how hard it is to find raw oats!
<3 I'm going to call local feed places :)

Great minds really do think alike! :D
I'm stopping by the co-op while I'm out in the morning to see what they can tell me. Let me know what you find out.
Owning horses, I do know they grow and are living but we find alot of dust and sometimes mold in horse feed. I find raw oat groats at the health food store or maybe you can order online. I would just be concerned about them being fit for human consumption. I am very picky about what we feed out horses but still wouldn't use the oats for myself.

That's what I was wondering, is if they would be fit for human consumption.
I can get them I was just trying to find a cheaper way to get them. The one's Ive seen online are pretty high priced. Oh well. Guess you get what you pay for. :)

I've also heard that there are very different chemical allowances on animal feed and seeds for planting. Make sure you ask someone who knows... maybe the supplier? If they are clean you're laughing!
