Why not just get a feed designed for horses? When I bought my horse 3 months ago he was being fed All-Stock. In just the short amount of time that I've had him and fed him like a horse he looks like a different horse. Horses, cows, llamas, etc have very different nutritional needs. Although you CAN feed them non-horse-specific feeds they look so much better when you meet their nutritional needs.
I'd also read the label carefully on any cattle feeds- I think I read that the cattle creep feeds don't contain the things that are poisonous to horses (rumensin, monensin, etc.) but I'd be very careful to make sure that's the case.
