And sometimes who knows why they founder. I had an old broodmare that had
foundered bad when she was younger. She was broodmare sound, but not riding
sound. Had wonderful babies. But sometimes she would flare up for no
reason. This mare was such an easy keeper she only recv 1/2 scoop (those
plastic ones that all the feed stores sell) of grain twice a day.....rest of
the time was plain costal hay. Sometimes you have no idea why....
On the subject of beet pulp....one of my barn cats (a kitten) LOVES soaked
beet pulp! I have to cover the buckets when they are soaking or she is in
it eating away. And yes she does get good food....she is on Pro-Plan kitten
formula....all she wants.

There's plenty of causes of founder. I have had 2 friends whose horses
have had "toxic founder" or something like that where they just ate a
weed or something that caused it. Also there's road founder from riding
on hard surfaces. The most common of course is grass founder, or leaving
a feedroom door open. I doubt very seriously that it's anything you've
intentionally fed her unless you just like to feed a horse a bucket of
grain at a time.
