I know I'm late in this post, but I just found it.
I know you said your guy won't eat beet pulp anymore, have you ever tried to soak it with alfalfa pellets? I have mixed mine, 50/50, 60/40, 70/30 (hahaha) and added a cup of ground flax seed.
I don't know what it is about that combination, but it sure has worked wonders for every horse I've ever needed to put weight on. My senior mare is on this now and looks wonderful along with free choice grass hay. Granted...she LOVES her beetpulp...so that helps :)
Your guy loves alfalfa, so he might be a little more inclined to eat the beet pulp if it's "alfalfa" flavored. ;)
Just a thought, let us know if you try it and if you have any success.
Personally, I think your guy looks great!
