Feeding Oats?

 I am about to change over to your recommended feeding program for my entire barn.  What type of oats (whole, crimped or rolled) and do you recommend cooking them?  I have a friend who swears by feeding oats – dry in the am and cooked in the pm. 
What do you think?  Thanks!

Whole oats are just fine. Crimped are just 6 percent more efficient digestability wise and once crimped they begin to go rancid so generally not worth the trade off. As for cooking no problem I am sure, just don’t know of any wild horse that eats anything cooked. The enzymes in Just Add Oats will help digestion/break down.
