Re: [RC] beet pulp - superpat
Just as a side note....I know of a knowledgeable horse person who puts a
handful of small stones into her horse's feed dish to disncourage them from
wolfing down their feed. The horses take a little more time to eat around
them. I wonder if this would be as safe with a wet feed and if the horse
would also work it's way around the stones?
