At my barn during the summer, we use woodypets pellets, and it is SUPER absorbent.. I have pictures of it somewhere of how much it can hold, when I find them, Ill be sure to post! We dont use it during the winter, because it will freeze solid! Thats the only bad thing about it. So we just use regular shavings in the winter. Around this time of year though, we do not get the woodypets wet. It would be far too cold for the horses to lay on, as it gets near 20F at night here. We just put 2 bags in, as well as a huge wheelbarrel full of straw bedding that my trainer/BO has, and were good to go! for a week.
