beet pulp soaking

I'll bet you're feeding the flaked stuff.  The pellets take longer.  At
my last 50 I noticed the person parked next to me had given his horse
pellets that weren't completely soaked.  I though, "I wouldn't do that
after a ride".  In the middle of the night I got up without a flashlight
to check on Kaboot and noticed that in the moonlight his pan looked like
it had some of those partially soaked pellets in it.  I was upset
thinking he may have gotten some of theirs and I grabbed a handfull of it
to see if the insides of the pellets were still hard.  Well... should
have taken a flashlight.  I had a nice handfull of warm green manure
smashed in my hand and nowhere to wash. >g<  I hate it when they poop in
their feed pan.
