I walked into the Southern States store yesterday and found a 50 lb bag of whole oats for $17.00! The bag is called Triple Crown: Whole Race Horse Oats. I feel like I hit the jackpot considering before I was paying $1.50 per lb. The bag is pure oats, and my meeces are in heaven hahaha :lol: -Anyways, just thought I'd share since it was an excellent buy. I'm pretty sure that you can buy it online as well.
Hoo! I don't pay 1.50/lb even buying organic at the Natural Foods co-op! Awesome find, though! Also, I find it odd that there's no Southern States store in my decidedly Southern State. But they have them in IL. :roll:
Wow, what were you buying before? I pay a lot for the oats I get but because I live on a island with no feed store and have to buy from the grocery store. Triple Crown oats were actually considered expensive when I lived on the main land and had horses. Not that I fed oats... but you could get a 50lb bag at my old feed store for less than $10!
Well, in my town we have 1 horse for every 2 people, which was stated by the county last year - my county is horse country lol, theres a high demand for oats and anything horse related. It's very expensive.. :/
But the up side is that any road you drive down theres a load of horses and cows They're so pretty. Do you ride?
Ah yes, you're in VA! Lucky you! That's where I'd like to move after my boyfriends orders are done here. Yes, I ride. Unfortunately since moving to this island I have limited chances to though. Before moving here I adopted out my horse of 10 years. It was devastating. But I suppose having mice to occupy my time and energy has helped me deal.
