I am a machanic. There was a tree triming truck in here today full of pine. I thought about filling my truck up to use for bedding but it was about half pine needels and I wasnt sure how that would be for the horse. Did I mess up big time by not grabing it?

No, you dodged a bullet.

Pine shavings, sawdust, or even pine pellets are preferable to just any old garbagey pine detritus.

Horses may be big, but they're delicate. There are several reasons we just don't use any old crap in their stalls for bedding.

Plus, if it was just a ground up pine tree there is probably quite a bit of that evil sticky pine sap included. Not what you want stuck all over your horse.

Most commercial bedding is made using kiln dried lumber.

Would this stuff work? Probably.

Not worth the risk if they can not guarantee there is no black walnut in there.
