My horse ate a feather today...

Ok so it sounds like a really silly question, but I'm curious/concerned...
The chickens got out and invaded the feeding area, it was quite comical actually... the poor horses were so distraught, and ended up moving their OWN food dishes to the other side of the paddock, I went with them to battle the stupid birds away from the food and when I looked up my gelding had a gross, dirty chicken feather in his mouthful of grain and ended up eating it before I could pull it out.
SO, feathers aren't things I feed normally lol, but do you think it would cause any problems?

I was just worried because when I went out there a while ago he was laying down full out stretched on his side and didn't get up until I was about close enough to yell in his ear.
But he seemed fine after that...

My friend's horse has Equine Metanolic Disease and when they first found out she was in bad shape, they were worried about losing her and laminitis. Well one dayher husband came home and Tobi was laying under the lean-to on her side. When he stopped his truck she didn't move, when he beeped the horn she didn't move, when he called her name a million times she didn't move(this is not like her) he was so worried he was going to have to tell his wife her horse was dead. So he climbed the fence and started walking over to her he got 2 feet from her and a small speck of dirt hit her she jumped up so fast then gavehim a look like really you had to wake me up. Lol I swear our horses plot to scare the crap out of us.
