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.
