We get beet bulp crumbles and they soak up in 5-10 minutes. MUCH faster than hay pellets we have tried.

My 33 year old mare is getting Nutrena Triumph which has forage products,Wal-Mart Great Value oatmeal mixed with a good amount of water and powdered milk,corn and soybean oil mixed and carrot pieces. She is not getting any hay. She does eat some grass and clover also. I hope that fescue is either endophyte free or non toxic endophyte because the other is bad for them. I have had my mare for almost 18 years and she has never colicked. My pasture has mixed grasses incuding orchard,bluegrass,perennial ryegrass,barley grass,annual ryegrass,winter wheat,etc. + clover and hairy vetch(which only grows part of the year.) Blue Seal has feed with vegetable oil in it. They have a variety of feeds also. www.blueseal.com and www.nutrenaworld.com

Dumas, I don't know where any feed mills are around here....guess I can start investigating

Kitten_Val - thanks for the idea about the hay stretcher...I might be able to use that! I had already been in contact with Southern States - they have lots of forage, but nothing grass and cubed...although I might have to check out the chopped grass hay...I didn't price that last time I was at the feed store.

Thanks everyone!!! *waves*
Kickshaw, you do not have to soak BP for 24 hours. Heck it would spoil or freeze around here if I did that. Pellets do seem to take longer to break down than shreds I hear. Never had any pellets so I don't know about them. Hot water will swell up those shreds in 20 minutes tops. I have done that inside in winter and carried it out. Heck cold water it bulks up fast enough for me out in the barn. Then I add my pelleted feed(alfalfa pellets and total equine) tothat making sure it's a bit soupy as it is easier for my horse to eat it a bit slushy. I am giving my gelding a lg coffee can full of BP with a bit of alf pellets and a lg can of T.E. 2-3 X a day depending on my schedule and the weather.
