Nutritionally they are pretty much the same ...
I'm not sure exactly how much he is eating, but when there is hay out(i try to have it out 24/7 even tho sometimes they are without it a few hours) I always see him digging into it, I think I read somewhere that beet pulp can he used as forage, which he gets about 2-3/3quart scoops in his food so even if he is not eating a lot of hay would that be enough to help his digestion

thats good to know, I would actually think by looking at them that they would soak faster

easier to chew if a plus, i'm glad that he loves his mushy stuff, i've heard of some horses that won't touch their grain if soaked, I was worried about that when I first started soaking it, he was probably just glad to be able to eat it, poor guy, I felt so bad when I would out he had lost so many teeth
