My mare is getting 1 quart scoop mixed with other grain at night in her stall, but she's also getting about 9 pounds of a senior complete feed. This spring when she was way too thin and my vet said to let her have as much as she would eat--he also suggested alfalfa cubes soaked but she didn't care for them and they weren't any cheaper.
The terrific thing about beet pulp is you can't hurt the horse with over-feeding it, so I would just feed more or less depending on how thin the horses are and how quickly you want them to gain weight. The worst that can happen if you feed too much is that they'll get fat! I think you could easily feed a quart morning and night if they're really skinny.
don't worry, spiders, I keep house casually.
