Soaking Beet Pulp

To keep my boy hydrated, I give him soaked beet pulp. I havent been able to lately, but I'm starting back up again, especially with the cold weather and needing to make sure they get enough water. I board, so I decided to put it in my largest water bucket, add water and soak it in the morning, then take it out to him and my other horse in the afternoon. Around 8 this morning is the first time I did it - put about 5 coffee cans of beet pulp pellets (total for both horses) in the bucket (which made for about 2 inches deep of pellets), added 2 coffee cans of triple crown, and then added warm water in the tub for soaking. I checked it periodically to see if there were any hard pellets and added water accordingly. It's just past 11 now, and this is the monster I found in my tub.

I think I'll cut the recipe in half from now on...

That's what I've done in the past - I don't think the Triple Crown expanded much if any. I mixed them while it was dry so I wouldn't have to get too messy. Except I stuck my hand in there and mixed it around to make sure it was completely soaked anyway lol.

I had my mare on TC senior and beet pulp, soaked. I use warm/hot water in the winter as it soaks it absorbs faster that way. I soak the TC first as it takes quite a bit longer than the beet pulp, and add the beet pulp after the TC is all done. Four pounds of TC and a pound of BP turns into almost enough to fill a five gallon bucket!

Nothing better than happy mush covered horse faces. LOL.

I give beet pulp to my oldster, along with Blue Seal Trotter. He gets one quart of beet pulp and one quart of Trotter twice a day, as well as hay.

I use hot water to soak it, and it doesn't take more than 5 minutes tops for all the water to absorb.

Yeah, I'm doing it at home in the tub so the water is warm - plus it's still warm when I feed it to them! I'm using Triple Crown Complete, which already feels "moist" in the bag. I wonder if it did add to the expansion?
