Wood shavings as animal bedding

Wood shavings have been a popular horse bedding for many years, and are often used for horses that suffer from respiratory disease, or those that tend to eat other types of bedding.

The quality of wood shavings varies greatly, particularly in respect of the dust content. Dust extracted shavings are the most popular as they are of a higher quality and have a low dust content. Low quality shavings, often a sawmill by-product, are not suitable for horse bedding as they can be contaminated with sharp splinters and other potentially dangerous waste.

Wood Shavings have proven to be satisfactory bedding providing comfort and ample absorbency

The brands of shaving with the largest flakes are usually produced from virgin wood and can have lower dust content. Wood shavings do provide excellent support for the horse’s hooves as they compact inside them.

Shavings are usually packed in polythene wrapped bales, making them easy to stack and store.
