There is so much confusion with beet pulp and I know before I started using it I did alot of digging ... thought this would be a good start for most people

the biggest gigrle I get is the expanding in the stomach myth ... when in reality as the horse chews it starts the BREAKDOWN process with digestive juices which prevents the blow up theroy

I used to think this.
Then I read a really good article about it. Wish I could find it..

Great article! No one believes me when I say it doesn't have to be soaked... but maybe if they read this they will!
