Yeast growing in horse feed can?!

Hello all. I have an odd question.
Background first:
Had been feeding a wet C.O.B just to use to get their hoof supplement in them, literally maybe a 1/4-1/2 cup per horse/day.
So I decided to make it a bit healthier and bought a feed to mix it with, still not planning to feed more though.
I bought 'Country Acres General Livestock Feed.' It is pelleted, and a bit sweet.
I mixed them in the same clean, no issue trashcan as the COB had been in.
Fast forward 2 days, and I open it today to give them the supplement, and there is something that I swear looks like yeast growing on the sides and lid of the can?! The feed seems fine, smell and texture wise.
I have googled it, and can't find anything, seeing as how everything leads to info on yeast which was put in there on purpose by the manufacturer.
I am calling the feed store in the morning to get refunded, but I wanted to see if anyone had any idea of what happened.
The feed is kept at a nice temperature, nothing has been in it, etc.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you have!
