    Foal
    I feed wet oats ( molasses covered) in a mix with horse pellets and alfalfa pellets and corn chops and rice bran and a lil 18% livestock feed and they all look very nice and arent overly hot

    Have you had her teeth looked at? I wonder if she's in need of a float, or if your vet may be missing some spots when he/she floats. The last vet I used was one I swore by, until I had another out for an emergency and he pointed out all the sharp/uneven spots in my horses mouth, only 4 months after his last float...

    If she eats fast, add some big rocks to her bucket, or feed her in a shallow pan or trough. If crimped or rolled oats are in your budget, then switching may be not a bad idea.

    If you want to sow oats - sow oats! Seed to soil contact is paramount for germination so you need to get some soil over the seed. If you want to feed your animal oats - and we do - feed them oats, but don't imagine it is some wonderful seeding method - it ain't! You will see some plants come up from oats dropped out of the horses mouth and into the stall floor and thus into the manure pile, but this is not a seeding method! A no-till drill is a seeding method!
