Fibre Beet, anyone?

I'm looking into replacing grains in my geldings' diet with the beet pulp product, Fibre Beet ( British Horse Feeds Company & Products Fibre-Beet ). Do any of you have an experience to share - is it as good as the producer claims? Any other thoughts or tips on the beet pulp topic? Thanks in advance. Also, is their other product, Speedi Beet, as good to be a replacement for grains and what supplements he'd need instead of the nutritients in a complete feed? He's currently getting a mix of seaweed, brewers and live yeast, a mix of herbs for immunity, turmeric and ginger, and will start him on flax seed, and he's also getting loose salt. Enough or lacking?

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

I feed mine speedibeet and brewers yeast, linseed and salt and turmeric to the oldie. I would only feed seaweed if the forage was very low in iodine or potassium as it is very high and can upset some horses.
