beet pulp needing soaked is a MYTH.... the only time you need to worry about soaking it is if you have a horse prone to choke
Oil interfers with the utilizion of other nutritients... so it is not a best option.. Rice bran is a good option as long as it is stablized
TO the OP: sometimes it takes them a day or so to "warm" up to it.. try wetting it to different levels as well... I have one horse that won't touch it dry she literally curls her nose up at it... she likes it soupy.. I have one that likes it dry and one that likes it in between
