    I soak my beet pulp but not for long. I measure it out first, toss it into a bucket and add some water and let it sit while I am measuring out the feed for everyone, so it sits about 5-10 min. Just long enough to suck up some moisture, that's all it really needs.

    I would think it would be kind of like that stupid "cinnamon challenge" that was going around on youtube a while back. People would swallow a spoonful of cinnamon and it would dry out their mouth, stick, and then when they went to cough, they would choke on it. So I was thinking, as quickly as beet pulp absorbs water, it is very possible that it could dry the mouth and throat out as soon as it's swallowed, causing coughing, maybe inhalation, and possible choke. Wouldn't happen to every horse, but could easily happen to some, so adding water is a good idea.

    I also never soaked my beet pulp for hours. I dumped it, added enough water to top it about half an inch, then went and brushed the horses or something for 15-20 minutes. By then, it had completely soaked up the water to where I could not pour any water out. So at that point I'd add any other feeds on top and then just dump it into their buckets.

    We don't soak for hours either. We add hot water to each pail sometime in the afternoon, dump in their buckets right before they're brought in for the night.

    I have a question I know she is a young horse But I am curious what is wrong with SafeChoice and Grass hay??
    I feed both my Geldings this with Msm at night feeding and a touch of paprika
    that is all and they are both Fat and Very healthy.
    I am not knocking you just asking whats wrong with it in your eyes


    I do not feed alalfa as I think it is too rich and makes a horse hot

    While Safechoice and grass hay may be good for two grown horses that have gotten proper nutrition all their life, it's not a good choice for a growing underweight filly whose been malnourished her entire life. It's like playing catch up with her, which is why she needs a different diet. :)

    ETA: Alfalfa is also a good source of protein and calcium, which is also good for a growing horse. Though it should always be used in moderation, because too much of either can have negative effects.

    I recommend making sure that her back toes have been brought well back before doing the chiro. If they are not fixed first, she will become sore again. Actually, massage would probably be even better. Its likely sore muscles from long back toes. Almost certainly is.
