Feeding beetpulp.

When feeding beet pulp should I mix it into their daily grain, or feed it separately? And I know I have to soak it before feeding. :)

I've always mixed it in their regular food after soaking it.. Because there is more feed than usual I'll break it up into separate meals.. If you're already feeding twice a day I would just spread the feed out more and feed three times.

I soak it in warm water for about two hours and feed it to my mare along with her grain. She won't eat beat pulp without a little grain mixed in. Beat pulp is also great for hiding supplements! The only thing is that she will rush through her grain/beat pulp mixture, so I have to put a big old rock in there to keep her from inhaling it.

Beet pulp doesn't actually need to be soaked. Many horses find it to be more palatable that way, and it's definitely recommended if your horse is prone to choke, but otherwise it's perfectly fine to feed it dry.

Beet pulp SHREDS don't need to be soaked if you're absolutely sure that your horse is properly hydrated. I always feed it with the grain.

That just scares me. I always soak mine and I mix all the goodies together with it.
