If you get the chance, look for the squirrel story
Alfalfa for distance horses?
If you read down this article Susan G. does some debunking.
In fact she kicks a little butt when it comes to old-what's-her-name ☺
Beet pulp, though not for everybody is a mainstay in our barn. We did try the soy hulls and though my mare liked them, I didn't like how much gas they caused her, and no longer feed her the hulls, though the other two horses seem to have no problem with a little added to their ration. What I do like best about feeding soaked beet pulp especially in the winter, is getting that extra water into the gut. I thought I'd re-post these articles today since there is some especially good information in the Susan Garlinghouse articles.
