It's not medicated, i double checked this afternoon for any of the ingredients you guys listed, tractor supply won't take it back with out a receipt because the bags i have expire in november of 2011 and theirs expire in september 2011, there is a possibility that my picked it up from somewhere else, but i figured as long as i didn't want money back it wouldn't matter, but of well, i'm still not completely comfortable feeding it to the horses so i'm going to use it to feed the deer that visit our house, they can always use extra food during the cold winter

I think you are right to err on the side of caution if you are not sure. I would have no problem feeding my goat horse feed, but not the other way around. I have winessed goats eat terrible things and be none the worse for wear.
Years ago when I worked at a trail riding establishment there was a goat there that would eat anything. One day a guy dropped a pack of cigs and they all scattered on the ground, and the goat ran over and ate as many as he could before the guy could pick them up! Filters and all!
