[RC] beet pulp - Barb Reid
I have a question for Susan G and the rest of my experts
here on ridecamp. I have a mare leased out to another
endurance rider and she's been having intermittent lameness
problems, very minor and very elusive. We put pads on her
last shoeing hoping that would help but no difference. My
farrier was here this morning working on her and found
traces of laminitis in both front feet. He was asking
aobut her feed and all she gets at the farm is grass hay.
But at competitions and on training rides, the leasee gives
her beet pulp. I've heard nothing but good things about
beet pulp from ridecamp but the farrier said it has way too
much sugar and could be the cause of this problem.
What do you think?
