I feed beet pulp to my 26 year old Appaloosa that was emaciated when I got her about a year ago. I never thought she would quite look healthy again because of her age. But she has put on the weight and is now riding again. I mix the beet pulp after soaking it into her Senior feed. I soak the beet pulp while I am getting all of their hay ready and then it is good for her to eat. And I had a problem with her choking on just feed when I first got her. I have never had a choking problem with the beet pulp when it is soaked.

I look at it like local feed store bombards me with choices; weight boosters, senior feeds, joint supplements, feeds with added vitamins. I'm always asking myself which feed is best? What do I get because I have more than 1 horse? I know obviously each horse requires vitamins, minerals and proteins but not every horse needs the same amount of grain so I finally I started using a custom feed blend of Beet Pulp, Soybean meal, crimped oats or barley and a supplement like Lampley's A-Z. This way I can regulate how much vitamin and minerals my guys are getting. When I feel I need to increase protein I just add some flaxseed meal. Sometimes I add hay cubes for variety.
