Our vet told my mom to feed her mare beet pulp to help her gain and maintain weight. My mom got beet pulp flakes, and she gets a scoop twice a day, soaked of course. It's been working wonders.
So my question isn't about whether to feed them or not-- everyone has a different opinion about what to feed their horses and what works the best. I went ahead and bought a bag of beet pulp for my horse, since winter has been a little harsher than usual, but the feed store where I get my grain from only had it in shreds. I was planning on feeding her a "dry" scoop, soaked over night.
I was just wondering if the fact that it is shreds instead of flakes makes any difference. I've also seen them in chunks, so that's three different ways it's bagged. Does it make a difference, or is it all the same?
