I find that my horses stay more level headed during ride starts if I soak their beet pulp ahead of time and drain off the excess sugar as much as possible. For the longest time I had been doing it the hard way - filling up a bucket of water, putting the BP into it, and then when done soaking draining off the excess water.
Now I have found a much easier way to do it! I went to the $1 store and bought two of these metal mesh baskets. They are the perfect size to fit into my little 8 quart buckets.
I use pelleted beet pulp. The local feed store doesn't carry shredded, which is fine with me because I can store more in less space by using pellets.
Dump out the soaking water. You may refill the 8 quart bucket again with fresh water and rinse the beet pulp one more time.
That's it - simple and easy!
