Triple Crown Senior- Wet or Dry

Would it be okay to feed Triple Crown Senior dry? I am doing a self care board where I feed in the evening, prepare his morning feed, and then the barn crew feeds in the morning. I wet the feed in the evening when I feed, but I mentioned the wetting his feed to the barn owner and she said to do it the night before. But I'm pretty much 100% positive it will start to mold because there will be around a 14 hr time span until the feed will be fed. Also beet pulp starts fermenting extremely easily and quickly. I have heard that because of the beet pulp being in molasses, etc like it is in a complete feed that it is ok to feed dry, but I'm still not sure. So wet or dry?

ETA Plus the feed is stored in a bucket that is placed in a rubbermaid type container to prevent it from getting anything like fly spray on it, etc, so it is sealed and even worse for mold! And I just moved to this barn today

We have been feeding Triple Crown Senior "dry" for over 4 years... never had a problem

Senior is fine to feed dry. The beet pulp would be much safer to feed soaked since it will have already expanded. To get around the wait time for the beet pulp to expand, maybe keep it at home, put it in a bucket and add water so it soaks in the car on the way to your barn. It would be ready to feed by the time you got there assuming your barn is not around the corner.

I feed it wet when I feed, it's the problem of when I don't feed. I don't think they'll wet it for me, but I'll talk to the barn owner more

I feed it dry with no problems.

Is the beet pulp an ingredient in the senior, or something like beet pulp shreds you feed in addition to the senior?

If you make it as easy as possible for whomever feeds, perhaps water would be added. Perhaps have a water bottle handy with the correct amount of water.

It's in the feed. And I thought about putting a gallon of water near it so they wouldn't even have to walk to the faucet (less than 20ft away) but if its easier on them they'd probably be more willing to do it, and then just refilling it when needed

If it's in the feed, it's not necessary to feed it wet.

You do not have to wet TC Senior at all.
