Oats in My Backyard

We had laid straw down in the dog kennel this spring due to the amount of mud out there and what has sprung up is oat plants. At least I think they are oats.
I need some help with a positive ID on one of these plants though because I am not absolutely sure that they are oats. I know that the top ones are oats.

This bottom picture is of the seed heads that I am unsure of. I think they are oats, but I have seen wheat and barley that look like this as well.

I plan on saving the seeds and growing them next year, in the garden. Maybe choke out some of the weeds and grow some grain for breads.

If you can help me with this I would appreciate it!
