After all the beet pulp discussions on ridecamp a few months ago, I took a 
closer look at my feed label and noticed there was a small amount of beet 
pulp in it.  I've had no problems, but I decided to bring  a non-beet pulp 
grain to rides as I couldn't see feeding beet pulp during a ride when the 
horse tends to be dehydrated (even if it vets out fine).  At home I feed the 
grain that has some beet pulp, but not at the rides.  So far, so good,
The grain store has a new addition to their selection that is Enduro 
something or other that they were trying to encourage me to buy, but it has a 
really high beet pulp percentage (compared to the other choices), and I 
wouldn't touch it.  "But why are the 3 day eventers buying it?" 
"Guess they don't read ridecamp!"
