I switched months ago to the pellets from the shreds, cost less, and the swell up just the same after the two hour soak, and since it is to hot to leave it outside to soak, I bring the bucket into the kitchen.
He eats his supplemental feed pellet, eats the A+M , but started leaving the beet pulp and then paces and begs for more.
Guess I will have to see the cost difference for a hay pellet compared to the beet pulp and soak those for him,. He does get alfalfa hay and his feeder usually has fresh hay in it. I pull the stemmy stuff out every other day. Hay is thrown morning and evening, and in the afternoon he gets the supplement feed and a scoop of it with the beet pulp and A+M in the evening . Now that its HOT he is dropping weight . I am also getting him another salt lick, a plain white brick to go with the mineral one
