We depend on beet pulp at our barn to:
- Add fiber to the feed ration.
- Increase water in the gut.
- To get supplements/ medication hidden and consumed.
We use it:
In their morning mash daily.
At competitions to maximize fluid intake.
Mixed in their dry feed to add crunchy low calorie volume to the bucket.
For a slightly opposing view about beet pulp see Natural Horse Magazine.
Check out Susan Garlinghouse's view on beet pulp for horses here.
I'd have to say that the endurance horse has been a test subject and it seems to be working out okay.
