Bedding - Feed & Supplements 

There are various types of horse bedding materials available, each with its advantages and disadvantages. Some common types of horse bedding include: 
• Straw: Straw is one of the traditional bedding choices for horses. It is relatively affordable and provides a soft surface for the horse to rest on. However, it may not be as absorbent as other bedding materials, and it requires frequent replacement as it can become soiled quickly. 
• Wood Shavings: Wood shavings, especially those made from softwoods like pine, are a popular choice for horse bedding. They are highly absorbent and can help control odors. Wood shavings are relatively easy to handle and can be found in different textures, such as fine or coarse. 
• Wood Pellets: Wood pellets are another option for horse bedding. They are made from compressed sawdust and can absorb a significant amount of moisture. When exposed to moisture, the pellets expand and break apart, creating a comfortable and absorbent bedding material. 
• Wood Chips: Wood chips, like wood shavings, are derived from wood, but they are larger and coarser. While they can provide good cushioning and absorbency, they may not be as comfortable as wood shavings for the horse. 
• Hemp Bedding: Hemp bedding is becoming more popular as an eco-friendly and sustainable option. It is highly absorbent, has natural antimicrobial properties, and is biodegradable. 
• Shredded Paper: Some horse owners use shredded paper as bedding material. While it can be a cost-effective option, it may not be as absorbent as other materials. 
When selecting horse bedding, consider factors such as absorbency, dustiness, cost, availability, and how easy it is to clean and maintain. Proper bedding management is crucial for the health and well-being of horses, as it helps prevent issues like respiratory problems and hoof ailments caused by excessive moisture or poor hygiene in the stalls. It's essential to regularly clean and replace soiled bedding to ensure a clean and comfortable environment for the horses.
