With all the fillers they add to food these days? Quaker oats are more chemicals than real food!
I also said overall nutrition-- per 100g, it only has about 11g of fiber and actually a surprising 17.6g of protien. However, as a sole basis of nutrition
(which hard feeds act as, when they are properly fed) it is not a good source of everything a horse needs.
Oh and people eat oatmeal because the fiber makes you fuller for longer, although in the past, people called it "sticking to your ribs". They also eat it with other things like fruit, or maybe some eggs and bacon. You're not supposed to eat it as your only breakfast food or you'll be dying by noon.
