I’ve noticed if I skip feeding soaked alfalfa pellets, my 15 year old gelding doesn’t hold his weight on soaked beet pulp & 3 lbs feed only. Just 4lbs soaked alfalfa pellets per day really make a difference. In the winter I will have to double his alfalfa pellets intake.
To make it more convenient, I take my dry beet pulp in the house in a small bucket or supplement container to soak when I get up. By the time the coffee if made, that beet pulp is ready to take to the barn!
