How much do wild horses eat in a day?
Wild and feral horses typically consume about 2.5-3.5% of their own bodyweight daily in grass or other plant matter depending on the season. But they tend to also burn off more of the calories than domestic horses and require more food per pound of bodyweight due to the large amounts of terrain they cover.
A wild horse, just like domestic horses, eat around 3% to 5% of their body weight per day.

Horses eat almost constantly. In the wild, a horse band [A.K.A family] will have a lead stallion who looks for danger day and night, stopping only to snatch mouthfuls of grass.
