If the hay is just brownish, it's ok to feed. Mold has a distinct odor. If too damp it will also have lots of white specs. Hay that is turning yellow will smell like corn. Don't feed either but save it for a summer smudge to drive the bugs away. Don't put hay close to your face to smell for molds. The molds are very harmful in the lungs. If horses have plenty of good hay they won't touch the moldy hay if accidently fed.
