I finally made it down to Yerington to get a few sacks to test out. The horses gobble it up and the dogs go looking for bits the horses may have dropped. Next time I will take the trailer down so I can get a barrel or two. I can wrestle the barrels out of the trailer but not out of the back of the truck.
I go to Carson City at least once a month and they sell it there but it is cheaper in Yerington($56- barrel and $12, still way healthier and cheaper than what I can get at Big R in Fallon) and the people were much nicer to me on the phone. So I will take the drive to Yerington to get it :)

Have you been feeding it?

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

closest place to me is north of Los Angeles Delivery would be $0.75 a mile.....not economical. So, eventually maybe I will make a trip and buy several barrels at a time.

Not yet. Have to find me another source. That nice cheap feed/ hay store sold me crappy hay and a moldy bag of feed. Not all crappy hay, the new stack of grass hay is moldy. So of course I was very happy
So im off to looking for it elsewhere.

Maybe your feedstore could get you bags. Don't know if they deliver bulk in silos for filling the barrels. I'd have him look into it. The bags at the store I found are 12.50/50 lbs, so not that much more expensive than the barrels
