Re: [RC] nutrition question - beet pulp and iron - Beth Gunn

I have been reading a book for older horses, homeopathic geared, and it advises Not to supp iron as the horse supplies more than enough for itself, unless bleading to death.
Is the soil your hay is raised "red"?  Like  "Georgia - clay"?  I am coastal SC and we have a lot of sand, but clay also.  Need to get feed analyzed at Clemson for content.  Red Cell supps are out there for horses and dogs.  I am not sure dogs need it either.
Ride well

Subject: [RC] nutrition question - beet pulp and iron

I've found that my hay is very high in iron, and want to make sure I don't ad any more to my horses diet!
I know beet pulp is high in Ca, but I've also heard it typically contains quite alot of iron - is that true?
