Thanks SR - I was beginning to think I was the only person who soaked beet pulp and gave a horse a hot...well, warm, meal. I have fed the pellets dry and had no issues. I just got a bit paranoid and decided to soak them.
The shreds I always soaked for fear my horses would choke. It might not ever happen, but it seems that if something bad can happen to a horse, it's going to happen to one of mine. Not Murphy's law...DEE's law.
