Oh my... Find a new stable.

A horse cannot live on corn(flakes) alone. He needs a good complete pellet feed or a low-molasses sweet feed. I've rescued five different horses over the years that were given only a tiny amount of food and a roll of hay and that was all. They were near starvation when I rescued them. One of them developed chronic leg problems and had to be put down, mostly due to lack of nutrients. One eventually had to be put down because he was weakened badly by the lack of nutrition and he was very, very old. One horse had even been denied water, so he would appear "tame" to prospective buyers. He's one of the remaining three horses who are doing very well.

Please, do not let your horse starve. Human cornflakes are not a good diet for horses. They're barely a good diet for humans, and we're about 1/10th of a horse's size.
