When trying to choose the right bedding for your horse, it can be confusing. But The Hungry Puppy understands that providing your equine with a comfortable place to turn in for the night is probably at the top of your priority list - it’s at the top of ours, too! That’s why with brands like Carefresh, Premium Pet, Pestell, Northeastern, and others we offer many options of horse bedding!
One of the most classic options of bedding is shavings. Coming from pine or fir, about four inches of shavings in a stall ensures a smell that’s absolutely amazing and fresh due to the wood’s natural odor absorbing oils! Different types of shavings vary in how absorbent they are. For example, our kiln-dried shavings have a lower moisture content that reduces the chance of developing mold. The sheddings’ moisture resistance also provide a soft, comfortable experience for your horse. Plus, mites and bugs are not attracted to this type of material, giving you peace of mind that your equine’s space will remain clean. Another popular option is all natural wood pellets. This material meets all the criteria for what proper horse bedding should be: safe, readily available, easy to store, easy to handle, and cost-effective. Pellets, also typically made from pine or fir, are low in dust, keeping your companion safe from respiratory issues. It’s low in moisture content, making it super absorbent, and easily compostable. It is also quick and easy to clean, as it acts similarly to cat litter. Once the pellets become dampened by your horse’s waste, the soiled areas can simply be scooped out and removed, making it a painless process!
Regardless of which choice suits you and your equine’s preferences, The Hungry Puppy has all the horse bedding options your companion needs for a comfortable, cozy, easy to handle stall!
