Can you substitute beet pulp for grain?
I was curious to know if I could substitute my horse's grain for beet pulp pellets? Currently for his daily grain ration is 2 quarts of Purina Strategy and 3 cups soaked beet pulp pellets. He's doing really well with the beet pulp and I just wanted to see if anyone else does this. The only reason he gets Purina Strategy is because my trainer said it has some roughage in it. But it doesn't have as much as the beet pulp does, so I think he could do without it...He's an easy keeper 6 year old Paint Horse gelding. 15 hh, and 1150lbs. He's not in hard work, only being ridden about 4-5 times a week (more or less as my schedule and the weather allows) for about 1- 1 1/2 hours. Thanks in advance!
