[RC] questions about beet pulp - Jennifer Adam

Hi - my mare and I are conditioning to the point that she needs more groceries and I'd rather feed beet pulp than grain. The problem is I've never fed beet pulp before and I don't know anyone around me who does either. I apologize for my ignorance - but I really need to ask some questions about it. First - how much water am I supposed to soak it in? Does it matter? Second - how do I check the quality? What does "good" beet pulp look like and how will I know if it's "bad"? Third - how long can I store it in a closed container in this heat and humidity? There's only one place I can get beet pulp and they have to special order it for me, so I feel like I don't have any control over the supply or the quality. It makes me really really nervous, especially after the comments a week or so ago about moldy beet pulp. Before now I've aways been able to monitor and control the quality of everything my horses ate, so this is a new experience for me and any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks -
Jen and the wild bunch (oooh - something in a bucket! must be something yummy!)
