The Importance of Choosing the Proper, Quality Bedding.

There are lots of different wood-shaving varieties and species on the market. Of course, all owners of horses, livestock, and pets want to provide a safe and comfortable environment for their animals, while keeping costs and maintenance to a minimum.

When choosing animal bedding, research shows that the most important factors are:

  • Consistency
  • Odor control
  • Absorbency
  • Comfort/Cushioning/Loft
  • Ease of use
  • Appearance

There are certain aspects of animal bedding that everyone agrees are undesirable, including:

  • Excessive moisture
  • Excessive dust
  • Excessive large or irregular pieces (chunks, sticks, and bark, for example)
  • Poorly-filled bags
  • Bad seals, ripped bags
  • Certain species—for example, Black Walnut, which can cause laminitis in horses and should be avoided
