Re: RC: XP rides

Actually, from what we've been finding out, there is certainly not going to 
be a problem getting feed along the way.  There are at least 54 feed stores 
along the route.  I have store locator (website links) on the page Steph 
put up on doing the ride might be well advised to 
find out where all of these places are so their crews will know where to go 
and what is coming up each week.  Can you tell I want everybody else to be 
prepared too?  We'll all be much better off if we don't have to bail out 
people who didn't plan ahead.  If you use a particular feed that is only 
available in your area, you can plan to have it shipped to you.  Otherwise, 
get your horses used to the types of feed that will be readily available 
along the route.  I've got at least three feed manufacturers who have said 
"tell us where you'll be and we'll make sure you have what you need".

There is one thing that I'm not sure about -- that's how beet pulp is 
affected by humidity?  It's going to be summer time, and I know that here 
in NV that it doesn't take long for soaked BP to start to get 
rancid.   I've been using pellets (which are wonderful!), but they take 
about 2-3 hours to soak.  I don't think that'll work very well if it's hot 
and humid.  What do you guys think who live in more humid areas?
