OOOOH! I know how you feel! My TB Gelding, is an EXTREMELY picky eater. I swear, sometimes *shakes fist in air* lol.
My TB wont eat strait Beat Pulp either, no way, no how, nuh uh! I have tried apple sauce, molasses, carrots, warm, cold, blah blah blah - he wouldn't touch it. So I gave up with the Beat Pulp for quite some time.......UNTIL! *insert horn toot here* lol - I was told to try Tripple Crown Senior.
OMG, I love this product! I was feeling Purina Senior for quite some time, until I found out that their foumula's are not fixed, they change quite frequently, and the list of ingredients is not always up to par - so I switched under the advisory of a few Equine Nutritionists to go to Tripple Crown, and I am thrilled!

To boot - it is crammed packed with Shaved Beat Pulp! And yes, Nelson gobbles it up - all of it. He licks the bottom of his feeder and he gets into his bucket *The bucket I put his feed in, to mix with his suppliments before it gets dumped into his feeder* and licks that non stop until I take it away from him.
Look into it! That doesn't mean you have to buy it - but ask around. There are 2 other fellow Boarders who were feeding Purina Products *1 Ultium and the other Senior* and they saw what I was feeding, and returned their newly bought bags of Beat Pulp, and invested in the Tripple Crown Senior. More bang for your buck I think, since it already has everything needed in it, plus the shaved Beat Pulp.
