A question about medieval warhorses.

First post here, though I've looked through occasionally.

I have a warhorse, injured but still on his own feet, back at the barn being cared for. What would the typical feed be for him?

Would they give him oats after a battle or would they give him something else like mash, or just hay?

Thanks in advance!

Edit for detail: This warhorse is actually larger than a shire and probably the most valuable one in the kingdom. Which means he's also one of the heaviest.
