If you read the ingredients in mixes and nut, you will find that they too have sugar beet in. Also Corn which in high doses, is not very good either.

thank goodness somebody has agreed with my love of feeding sugar-beet [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

i was taught as a kid to feed SB in place of hay if the hay was not good, or to dump hay if the year was very bad and feed good straw and SB instead to ponies, even the bit about alfalfa (called lucerne in UK) we used it as a grass nut when hay was iffy or for putting on weight.

i feed a warm bucket of SB late on winter nights because i was taught that it would stoke up their boilers same as why we eat a bowl of porridge, it seems to work and now I GOT PROOF!!

i guess its like a lot of other 'myths' like
'you gotta show the horse who's boss', often used as an excuse for roughness.
& 'women can't handle big horses', wanna bet?
the myth that 'some horses are 'mens' horses', ???????????????????

& the 1 i hate the most....

'you can't teach someone to ride, real riders are born' (ok so tell me, if thats so why does the olympic team etc still need a trainer? ok so talent is born, but someone has to bring it out).

come on i bet you know some more 'myths' lets 'ave 'um!! [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
