Believe it or not, a lot of grasses and grains have sugar, it's just not sugar broken down. Grains are carbs, carbs are sugars..... It's like that Junior high experiment where you hold a cracker in your mouth...after a while it starts to taste sweet due to your saliva breaking it down in your mouth and turning the grains in the cracker to the digestible sugars.
So in reality, all horses, even wild horses eat sugars all the time. Just their teeth can handle it better than ours ha ha ha. They also drink a lot of water that washes it away...unlike us who drink juice, soda, kool aid and other sugar laden drinks lol.
