Is Beet Pulp a good substitute?

Beet Pulp As A Dietary Supplement

Beet pulp can be used as a digestive aid.

Be sure to always add 2X the amount of water to dry beet pulp before feeding (allowing the beet pulp to absorb the water before feeding~!)~!!

Recommended to add COLD WATER to mix Beet Pulp, and allow it to soak overnight; due to using hot water can start a fermentation process within the container of beet pulp, and depending upon degree of fermentation, can cause a horse to colic, if the horse is predisposed to colic.
