We use beet pulp. It's easily digestible and the horse won't colic on it no matter how much you give.
We had a friend keep her horse with ours for a while. When she got here, she was underweight, ribs easily seen, spine showing and hip bone sticking out. In two months, she had put on some weight and started looking good. We also have a hard keeper for one of our horses. The beet pulp helps him keep the weight on during the winter and not have to have a blanket on.
We get our beet pulp in 50 lbs bags for under $10. One bag lasts about one week for 8 horses in the summer and about 1/2 that in winter. I think it comes out cheaper than most other feeds.
