Hi Martha,

I don't remember all your horse's details, but if she can eat hay and r/s/r beet pulp, you could give her a little of the hospital hay and some beet pulp in order to stretch your ODTBCs.  I'd start slowly so her intestinal flora gets used to it, but that would be one thing to try.  When substituting -- beet pulp has more calories than hay.  I think  1 lb BP equals about 1 1/2 to 2 lbs hay.  (weigh the BP dry and then r/s/r)
