Have fed wheat hay for years. However, mature wheat grain is dangerous.

We feed round bales of wheat hay. Horses are sleek, shiny, and tend to gain weight with them.

Never thought about it

Started to learn more about it in all animals and it is getting my attention

4/24/2013 11:09:35 PM

it worries me the amount of wheat we may have in hard feeds.

Are you including midds as a 'wheat ingredient'? I find midds a very useful pellet ingredient.

4/24/2013 8:31:15 PM

Horses never heard of wonderbread and that's a good thing

4/24/2013 1:18:48 PM

Horses are not people, and do not suffer from the same mysterious fantasy diseases as people

4/24/2013 12:23:00 PM

Have one horse that is allergic to wheat

4/24/2013 12:19:52 PM

GMO's and pesticides are taking over our wheat

4/24/2013 9:39:23 AM

wheat, corn and soy should be avoided completely. GMO!!!

4/24/2013 8:32:35 AM

You're kidding, right?

4/24/2013 7:20:10 AM

I never buy a feed where wheat midlings are the first ingredient

4/23/2013 9:16:55 PM

Not important-I mix my own grains everyday for each horse's individual needs

4/23/2013 9:16:53 PM

Just so grain in general isn't over about 10 percent of the feed.

4/23/2013 8:49:07 PM

Our horses here in Mexico get hay, pasture and wheat chaff ("solvado") and are healthier than ever

4/23/2013 8:29:18 PM

I don't feed grains or horse feeds to my horses anymore; too much wheat is being used in horse ratio

4/23/2013 7:59:41 PM

Oh puh-lease! What's next--peanut allergies?!

4/23/2013 7:47:01 PM

We feed CoolStance (coconut) and a vit/min supplement. Many benefits, organic, no GM ingredients.

4/23/2013 7:21:30 PM

Horses eat grain products and as far as I know don't have Gluten intolerance. Feed 'em wheat

4/23/2013 7:21:16 PM

I never thought about it, guess I will now.

4/23/2013 6:47:16 PM

Doesn't belong in a horse's diet.

4/23/2013 6:46:19 PM

All my horses are maintenance/light duty, do not feed grains or supplements

4/23/2013 6:39:53 PM

I don't pay attention to wheat - I try to minimize NSC's

4/23/2013 6:12:26 PM

What's wrong with wheat? My horses love bread and rolls.

4/23/2013 5:51:28 PM

Haven't really thought about it. Don't think my feed has any.

4/23/2013 5:21:15 PM
