Back to feed

I have two out of work ponies and a hay shortage. I want to feed them something to fill them up at bit at nightime. Any advice? thanks

Hay cubes/pellets might be easier to find than actual hay. Go for timothy or bermuda, not alfalfa.
I normally use beet pulp to gain weight. If they’re over weight they’ll be fine with just hay. Maybe a trickle feeder could be a good idea? So they don’t just gobble up their hay and have to take time to eat it
Anything else that would be good? Will beetpulp help put weight on? Cause I mean they just need a bit of bulk to fill them... There fat enough
Yes,Wet beetpulp is very good I use it on my horses and if u are going to use it at night use 2 scoops of it:)😂

They both get stabled at night and I was thinking of feeding chaff and wet beetpulp just as a filler up? What do you think? They both heavy and not thin at all.
