Cavalina, my yearling filly, is going to a USDF DSHB show at Fair Hill on August 21-22, and is being stabled overnight. Fair Hill only allows straw bedding in their stalls.
I have never bedded a horse on straw, I much prefer sawdust for absorbancy and ease of cleaning. So, I have a few questions-
How many flakes of straw do you use to bed a stall initially? I don't know how big the stalls are there - but I'd venture to guess somewhere between 10x10 or 12x12.
Are certain types of straw better than others?
What's the going price of a straw bale? I'm going to call around to feed stores sometime this week... want to have an idea of what a good price to pay is.
