I actually heard about using it in my magazine The Horse, which is an Equine health magazine. They said that its a good bedding because its good for the environment and gives another life to used paper. You can also put it in compost, they said. I'd be all for it if I knew I'd always have enough! We go through a lot of shred at our office, but we have a deal with the Boy Scouts to come pick it up. The only con I could think of is that it would probably fall apart easily when they pee on it, unlike sawdust which holds together a little better. So for the sake of stall cleaning, it might be a pain in the butt. But I have no experience with it, so I'm just guessing since paper gets flimpsy and gross when wet. I've always used sawdust, as does the barn where I board and any other place I've been to around here, so I don't really have experience with any other bedding. Just my crappy .02 cents. LOL Of course if you are getting it for free, that's pretty sweet because you can't beat free!!
