you can also get beet pulp pellets in 40 lb bags , and they ,after being soaked, are even a bit finer than the shreds , so its easier chewing.
I was looking at the fencing there, nice, but I did notice the field fence is wire.
Was she outside near that fence when her ear injury happened ? If she had been scratching her head on it, she could have possibly gotten hurt there.
And yes the wire will slice through, I had one horse kick, got stuck, pulled his leg out before I could run over there, and it looked like someone skinned his leg. Glad to see the filly looking happy and she is a tad fatter, the fact that she is growing is Good good good !!
