There is so much confusion with beet pulp and I know before I started using it I did alot of digging ... thought this would be a good start for most people

the biggest gigrle I get is the expanding in the stomach myth ... when in reality as the horse chews it starts the BREAKDOWN process with digestive juices which prevents the blow up theroy
