Check out my thread on bedding reviews... From what I'm gathering pellets and fine saw dust are top picks.

Please remember - no text speak.

If a horse makes mulch of their bedding, they are in too long, claustrophic/uncomfortable, or there is too much activity around them. Being social creatures they want to be a part of it.

Our horses come in between 9 and 10 p.m. They are turned out again between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. Grain and hay are waiting in the stalls, they come in, we sweep and lights out. They are quietly muching hay when the lights go out. In the morning I grain, turn out and clean stalls. We have very few trashed stalls. It's a good way for me to determine how the horse is. A stall that was walked all night tells me the horse is agitated about something or not feeling well.

I switshed over to wood pellet bedding last year for my boarding barn. We have had great success with it! We use less bedding, end up with less waste, and the waste breaks down very quickly!

A friend was telling me about straw pellet bedding. They are based in North Carolina. Apparently it works better than my wood pellets and I think the cost is almost the same. It's called Streufex. She loved it!
