The last time we wrote about horse bedding, we did a recap of all the different types of bedding that are commonly used. That list included straw, shavings, wood pellets, paper, peat moss, hemp, stall mats, and even hay. By the end of that article, we concluded that there were really only 2 options that were available nationwide, and were inexpensive for most consumers. Those top two choices for horse bedding were shavings and wood pellets.
We also offered our input on the horse bedding options we have here at Pine River Bedding.
"Educated consumers should know that Pine River Bedding offers 2 very different products as economical and readily available options inside your stall. Our Pine River Bedding Double Quick Pick and Pine River Bedding Gold Stallion Pellets have both been on the market for years at this point. Both products are purchased for different reasons.
Both of our products are available in poly bales with caps for outdoor storage. This allows you to keep your inside storage space clear for other needs throughout the year.
Pine River Bedding Double Quick Pick is preferred for the customer that wants to do less coat maintenance on their horses. By using 100% all natural pine sawdust, the feces is coated in sawdust as the horse moves it around the stall. Should the horse roll in the feces, or lie down on top of it, then the sawdust keeps most of the feces from getting onto the coat of the horse.
Pine River Bedding Gold Stallion Pellets are preferred by the customer that is willing to pay a little more for convenience and ease of use. Pellets involve much less labor cost than other horse bedding types when it comes to handling. Additionally, the pellets take up less room to store, and there is less waste to handle as compared to straw. We do recommend that you spray the pellets with some water to make them lighter and fluffier for the horse to lay on."
We received some amazing feedback about that article and just wanted to thank everyone for jumping in and sharing. We really do try to provide thoughtful and informative articles for our fans.
Should you find yourself in the market for horse bedding, please give us a call. We would be more than happy to get you a price on shavings or pellets for your animals.
Great pure virgin wood shavings, pellets, and sawdust. Pine River Bedding.
