Re: [RC] electrolytes/colic/high HR - Lysane Cree

I always smell the beet pulp if it's been sitting awhile. Kind of hard to describe in writing, but it has a distinct sour kind of smell that just gets stronger the older/hotter it gets. So unless it has no smell (or at least nothing more than fresh beet pulp smell) I don't use it. Unless the weather is going to be cool all day, I keep the portion I plan to feed at a vet check in a small lunch size cooler with a cold pack and try to keep it in the shade or under a bag as much as possible.

It would depend on what was put into it.  Straight beet pulp should 
be fluffy.  If it was sitting around in the heat for 2 - 3 hours, I 
wouldn't want to use it.
