I have recently decided to switch from using straw to wood shavings in my stalls. A woman at tractor supply said to use a type of pellet under the shavings. I'm not sure what she meant. What do you guys use?
She was probably referring to wood pellets like another poster said. When I was doing rough board, I used woody pet and the cheaper brands of it. I personally liked it a lot, but it's not for everyone. I would mixe it in with pine shavings. They absorb the pee and what not and expand into bedding. With mixing it, my horses stall was always fluffy and clean :)
I like the pellets a lot. Try them out. I have a 10x12 stall, and I put 5 bags as a base, and would normally add 1 bag a week. The horses only come in for a brief period to eat now, and my guy rarely *uses* his stall, so I haven't been replacing very often recently. Posted via Mobile Device
