I use shavings. Always have, most likely always will. When it comes time for my mare to foal I'll probably change her stall to straw, though.

Have you guys heard of that corn cob bedding? It's supposedly really inexpencive and really good.

My bedding of choice for price, cleanliness and ease of cleaning is woody pet.
I am extremely anal about my horse's care and again I like pellets the best of all.
I use alot of the manure on my flower beds.
Wood shaving can NOT be put on your fields.
We use wood shavings and the grass and flowers grow like crazy anyway

Wood shavings are not good to put on the fields. Wood absorbs more nutrients out of the soil then they provide. While we have 100 acres of planted fields ALL wood shavings had to be hauled off the property.
No so with the woody pet or straw.
