Ok, starting to feed my mare her beet pulp and I am not the best with math figuring. Mu question is how much beet pulp should I feed my 1000lb mustang mare to put a little weight back on her? She eats 2lbs essential k and 1/2 bale of hay, about 30 pounds of hay each day. She is also turned out about 12 hours each day so whatever grass she can find. I am waiting to have her teeth floated as was stated in a earlier post and am at the max I can feed for the ration balancer and adding more hay to her diet is not getting the job done.
How much should I feed per day dry weight to get her to gain maybe 50 or so pounds back on her topline and ribs. Please give me dry weight or I will never figure out how to covert the wet weight back to dry weight, that would be a trial and error with water and beet pulp everywhere for me, LOL.
