Place to order feed online? Specifically, Purina Ultium?

We've run out of Ultium and our mare (who needs to gain weight and was on Ultium per vet's direction) is on Purina Senior now. The only feed store near us that carries it hasn't had any for the last two weeks, and they can't tell us when they'll have it again. (They keep saying that hopefully it'll be on the next truck but "It's Purina, so maybe next week, maybe next month"). They looked up on their computers for us and the nearest feed store with any in stock is nearly a 2 hr drive away (one-way).
So I'm looking for a place to order online and have it delivered, not having much luck w/ google. Anyone order feed online or know of any sites that sell it?

The freight would kill you easily doubling the cost. When you compare the two feeds,the biggest difference is the fat content. 5.5% vs 12.4%. Everything else is pretty close. Simply up the fat by adding 1 oz oil/# and you will bump it up into the 12%+. You're going to get just as good of results with the Senior so don't sweat it.
