Soaking beet pulp and grain

I'm doing self-board where they feed and turnout in the morning and I do everything else. They're pretty awesome about making sure my mare gets hay through the day and they'll bring her in when the other horses come in if it starts pouring rain.

I prepare her 1 1/2 lbs of SafeChoice in a tupperware container with her small mesh hay net ready for them in the morning. Then she's gets another 1.5 lbs of SC and 1lb of beet pulp and vitamins and more hay when I come in the evening to do her stall.

That said, I'd like to give her a bit more beet pulp and I'd like to split it up between morning and night. Would it be ok for me to soak the beet pulp at night until most of the water is absorbed and then dump in the SC and leave it in the container over night for feeding in the morning?

As it's not going to be getting warm and fermenting over night, I don't see why not. It will all look like yucky porridge, but your horse won't mind. Alternatively, could you put a Tupperware container with the safechoice in on top of the beet tub, if you want to keep them separate?

Ps I don't actually know what Safechoice consists of.....I presume it doesn't have any expensive and magic ingredients in it that won't like being soaked overnight?

That's what I'm figuring, but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't blissfully unaware of some major reason not to soak processed grain overnight.
