    I get my scratch grains at the TSC....and sometimes at the feed mill. Just remember....there is a lot of corn in there...and therefore not good for them during these hot summer days.

    I mix my own scratch. I buy bags of oats at the horse feed store and mix it with a little cracked corn and some times whole wheat and a little birdseed. Once in a while I give them a couple handfuls of rabbit feed when they can't get outside as a substitute for fresh greens and grass. In the summer I just give them the oats as to keep them a little cooler. If you know of anyone who keeps horses you can ask them to sell you some oats, they often buy bulk so it will be a lot cheaper.
