At Birchalls, we stock various types of bedding for your horse so that you can choose the one that’s right for them. Most owners traditionally choose shavings, hay and straw as bedding. Sometimes, they choose a mix of all three together for the perfect sleep space for their horse. More recently, owners have been choosing pellet bedding, which is mixed with water before use. This is a popular option with stable horse owners. The key is knowing your horse, and knowing which they would prefer.
Types Of Horse Bedding
As we mentioned, there is a large variety of horse bedding Kent available, which is why we want to let you know which you could choose from. Let’s take a look at a variety of horse bedding types.
The most traditional option, straw has the advantage of being cheap and able to break down easily to treat the garden. It’s nice to look at and popular with horses. Straw can also be bulky and messy to store, with some horses being allergic to it.
The advantages with chopped straw include the fact that dust has already been extracted from it, which prevents allergies from flaring up. It’s been treated, so it’s not edible for horses, and it’s not as bulky as regular straw.
Wood shavings are a very popular type of horse bedding Kent, but it’s finding the shavings with the right quality. It’s so important to buy the non-palatable shavings that have been bought specifically as animal bedding. They do take their time to rot down, and you need to ensure it doesn't become wet.
Wood pellets are made from compact sawdust that has been heat-treated. Water has to be added to make them fluffy and increase their absorbency levels. Wood pellets are eco-friendly and dust-free, making them a good choice if your horse has allergies. They can be slippery when still in pellet form so watch out for that.
