If you worry about undigested hulls you can get crimped (hull cracked) or rolled oats that have the hulls flattened along with the germ.
They won't last as long in storage as whole, but buying...
How new is your flooring?
My excavator put down what he called "stonedust" (DCG?) in my stalls & aisles.
It was like beach sand the first year, both I and the horses left hoofprints.
Lucky for me...

I'd call that orchard grass, except the seedhead doesn't look the same:
Good advice from goodhors & mvp.
I am "making do" with a Bitting Rig that has terrets like the saddle/back pad on harness & a crupper. Also has rings lower down on the sides that I run my lines...
Whiskey, my horses will appreciate your wisdom & Heads Up!
A Po-Key-Man is the human version of the Monsters only horses can see that humans dismiss as "just a rock" or "nothing".
