My 800 lb 1 yr old gelding gets 1 scoop of Mule City sweet feed with corn and 1/2 a scoop of pelleted beet pulp w/ molasses twice a day.

Beet pulp is supposed to be really good to help a horse digest better and it can provide them with extra liquid during the winter months when it's too cold for them to want to drink the icey water in their trough...and I think I read somewhere that it helps digest sugar better as well, but this one I'm not sure. It can prevent sand colic also.
My gelding acts very hot headed a lot, always pinning his ears back with no reason and acting impatient while he's eating his feed and at other times as well, he acts like a total jerk a lot, he's always trying to nip and bite while his ears are pinned back, a lot of times he'll try and do it when I'm walking him on the lead rope, he's well trained and everyting, he just gets very impatient with things and acts out and is sometimes irritated and tries to bite me on purpose not b/c I have a treat or he thinks I have a treat.....I have a feeling we need to switch him to something other than the sweet stuff b/c I think that's what's making him very hot-headed...
Your horse can only be as brave as you are
