and asked this morning, "Mom, what color is horse food?"

When I told him it was green, he said, "Oh, I then I fed Jay chicken food last night."


Jay seems fine this morning. And there wasn't so much as a crumble left in his feed bin.

your horse should be fine if he didn't have a hole lot but be careful with the feeds for if your horse gets medicated chick feed it could die as well as any other kind of animal like dogs, cats, or even adult birds for the medication to them is toxic.
My pony will some times escape from her pen so i keep the feed shed locked up

If Jay starts wanting to climb into the barn rafters to roost at night, you've got trouble.

Seems like a good place to ask a question.

How come for every POUND of food/hay my horse eats she produces 2 pounds of POOP?

Edited to add:
He did get medicated chick food. I called the vet, and he said he couldn't find any info on amprolium and horses. He said to call the feed company. The feed company said I'd have to feed Jay 5#/day for a month before I saw any effects--and even then, the medication wasn't "known" to be toxic to horses. He got a total of one pound.
