The above link is an excellent and reputable commentary on feeding bread to horses......it is from the Kentucky Equine research lab. In short bread can be fed in small quantities but lacks proper nutritional components for horses and should be used sparingly...... Hope that helps you, DRB

Let me know if you need additional info and make sure to read the whole article. I will be back online later tonight. DRB
