Re: [RC] free choice beet pulp at ridecamp - RDCARRIE

I'd make sure to provide beet pulp as part of his daily ration at home as well.  It takes time for the gut to adapt to new feeds, or increased amounts of a feed.  My husband's Paso Fino, which he rides in LDs, is particularly sensitive to increases in amounts of beet pulp...if we increase it too quickly, he'll develop a painful gas colic.  So, we feed beet pulp every day, and several days before a ride, we'll begin gradually increasing the amount he gets to what he'll be getting at camp.
