Re: [RC] [RC] vet check questions - Barbara McCrary

On the occasions when I do feed beet pulp, I add hot water, stir, and feed immediately.

Just send the beet pulp in a baggie and add water when you get there.  Contrary to popular belief, it does not have to soak for very long.  Actually (horrors) it can be fed dry and I have done so for years with no problems.  Leroy (who died last year at age 37) refused to eat anything that was even moist.  The idea of beet pulp pulling water from the gut is just an old wives tale.....mb

Hey all.  I am going to do the Whiskeytown 25 in April.  So, the V/C is out of camp and I'm wondering about pre-soaking my beet pulp in my crew bag.  I figured I would mix my beet pulp mush with water in ziploc and send this to the V/C.  Is there a better way? Or something I'm not thinking of?  I know if it's hot the BP can go sour but, I don't think it will be that hot.  Any ideas would be appreciated.
