Wheat hay for horse safe?

Postby tom4018 » Sun Jan 24, 2016 12:00 pm

Any harm in feeding a horse wheat hay? This hay was pretty mature but has a RFV value of 107. Horse will also get some supplement. My grass hay tested worse but higher in protein.

If he is a sorry horse you can feed him kryptonite and it wont hurt him. If he's worth his salt you better wait on someone smarter than me :cowboy:

Quote from web:

Out west, cereal grain hays are commonly fed to horses. These include oat and wheat hay (beardless wheat is more common for horses). They are perfectly fine hays, but it might take a little while for your horses to get used to them.

No beards in it.
If it was but up right it might be to hot for free choice.
Oat hay put up in the boot stage is to hot for free choice I know. We had to take a bale away from them once.

I don't know for a fact that it would be too hot, but I wouldn't feed it to anything I cared anything about.

If you cross the river before, leave a good horse on this side.
