The common oat (Avena sativa) was, like its main consumer, the horse, native to Tatary in Central Asia. About 2000 B.C., when the domesticated horse was brought from Asia to Arabia and Egypt, the cultivation of oats went along as the necessary staple for these newly-acquired animals. Even in ancient Greece and Rome, the planting of oats accompanied the introduction of the horse. This same pattern persisted in the course of the Roman conquests of Europe and the British Isles. Oats accordingly became a major crop for human consumption in Norway, Sweden, Ireland and Scotland, especially since they acclimatized themselves well to the colder regions of the north.
