    We only feed dry beet pulp except to one horse who is 23 yo with really worn down teeth. We have never had anybody choke. I only feed at ground level.we usually start feeding it in late October threw the spring. I also do not buy it mixed with molasses. For our hard keepers they get six pounds dry a day and our easier keepers get three pounds a day

    I give my horse a small amount of dry beet pulp shreds to add a little bulk to his ration balancer. I've read several sources that say you can feed the pellets dry, too, but I've heard enough stories of horses choking that I wouldn't do it personally.

    I really suggest soaking it, just for 15-30 minutes (assuming it's shreds). You may not have had one choke yet, but the risk of choke is much higher with dry beet pulp.
