There is only 1 to 5% molasses in most beet pulp anyway... there is just enough to keep the dust down

Well that's what I did but even the kind without molasses is a by product of the sugar beet so I'm waiting on the vet now to tell me whether her being allergic to molasses means she can't have any sugar or just not molasses in particular.

Any vets on the forum who would know whether an allergy to molasses means an allergy to ALL sugars, or just molasses in particular?? ;)

If she was allergic to all sugars you would be in BIG trouble since all feedstuff has some in it...

I would bet it is molasses not sugar itself

Another option would be soaking some alfalfa cubes to give her feed more "bulk"

This link may help clear up a few questions on Beet pulp The Myths and Reality of Beet Pulp - Susan Evans Garlinghouse I have in the past mixed Rice bran and Beet pulp, and found this to be an excellent mix particularly on a working horse. I would put a small salt brick in his tub, so he has to push it around to get all the feed and therefore slowing him down a little..

I hope this helps

I actually just read the above before I posted, great article! :) I do really hope that molasses and sugar aren't one and the same for her! That's going to make it VERY difficult to feed her ANYTHING but oats if so... :-/ Still waiting on the vet to let me know...
