12/30/2009 2:24:43 PM

found straw hard to clean, my one horse ATE the pellets

12/30/2009 2:07:38 PM

Wood shavings work the best, and go longer, even though they arent the cheapest

12/30/2009 1:46:13 PM

rice hulls over pellets

12/30/2009 1:27:01 PM

corrugated cardboard-half inch squares

12/30/2009 1:26:13 PM

12/30/2009 1:22:38 PM

I buy the premium "dust free" as I have a heavey horse.

12/30/2009 1:18:55 PM

I find wood pellets to be longer lasting & More absorbent then other types. Reduces cost

12/30/2009 1:05:01 PM

But can't afford it!

12/30/2009 12:46:01 PM

sawdust

12/30/2009 11:56:54 AM

Wood is so expensive, but we have found paper makes ur pasture look like a garbage spill.

12/30/2009 11:49:17 AM

we use saw dust from a saw mill close to us. the owner takes great care to sell only what may be use

12/30/2009 11:26:00 AM

In winter, straw gets too packed and frozen.

12/30/2009 11:24:40 AM

I mix pine shavings w/ coffee chaff from a local roaster. Chaff is more absorbent, free.

12/30/2009 10:59:59 AM

Easy to clean; keep good for weeks

12/30/2009 10:55:49 AM

combined with a good rubber matting-cant be beaten for hygene,efficiency and resporatory health :-)

12/30/2009 5:13:11 AM

At least my TB won't eat.

12/30/2009 3:49:28 AM

A combination of shavings and pellets. The pellets go in the wet spots with the shavings on top.

12/30/2009 3:39:45 AM

I Hate Straw

12/30/2009 2:04:53 AM

We only used straw when mare was expecting-pellets moistened are the best for us and horses as well.

12/30/2009 1:53:46 AM

12/30/2009 12:36:53 AM

I don't stall my horses

12/30/2009 12:26:34 AM

It cuts my cleaning time by half. Cost is same.

12/30/2009 12:01:51 AM

light soft....picks up moisture and is light and not bulky

12/29/2009 11:50:45 PM

Woody Pet is the best

12/29/2009 11:26:18 PM

pellets absorbs urine, and less waste other than removal of wet spots like clumping cat litter.

12/29/2009 11:19:28 PM

Pellets only work if you purchase the narrow tined pick

12/29/2009 11:10:12 PM

I put about 6 inches of sawdust down and then add straw on top for the winter.The straw lasts longer

12/29/2009 11:07:58 PM

12/29/2009 10:49:13 PM

pellets are easier to sift

12/29/2009 10:33:42 PM

finely cut cedar shavings

12/29/2009 10:33:26 PM

Less time for cleaning stalls, more time for horses.

12/29/2009 10:09:38 PM

you can usually mix the wet with the dry for longer lasting bedding between total stall cleaning

12/29/2009 10:02:16 PM

I just LOVE Dry Den. My vet recommended!

12/29/2009 9:57:55 PM

12/29/2009 9:36:27 PM

Pelleted corn cobs under pine shavings

12/29/2009 9:23:22 PM

12/29/2009 9:21:38 PM

I feel it last alot longer in the stalls and absorbs more

12/29/2009 9:16:40 PM

for all but broodmare near foaling, then oat hay

12/29/2009 8:57:22 PM

rice hulls

12/29/2009 8:45:51 PM

Using pellets that break down into sawdust saves us time, money and labor!

12/29/2009 8:42:42 PM

only feasible option in FL!

12/29/2009 8:41:42 PM

Peat Moss

12/29/2009 8:34:38 PM

Pine shavings smell great and are affordable at a local lumberyard.

12/29/2009 8:25:27 PM

Cedar Rest, repels insects and is easy to muck out

12/29/2009 8:20:37 PM

SHAVINGS! MY YOUNGEST HORSE LOVES ROLLIN IN THEM AS SOON AS I PUT EM DOWN IN BIG RUN IN SHELTER

12/29/2009 8:19:43 PM

Americas choice saw dust

12/29/2009 8:19:06 PM

I use a shavings/sawdust combination that works for me. For foaling I use shredded newspaper.

12/29/2009 8:18:27 PM

50/50 mix of rice hulls and sawdust

12/29/2009 8:18:15 PM

Pellets and wood shavings together

12/29/2009 8:17:44 PM

preferably pine but cedar shavings have a nice aroma for the barn

12/29/2009 8:13:39 PM

horses are only in stalls at meal time. Dirt is the flooring.

12/29/2009 8:12:36 PM

Just switched to pellets. It seems to last longer and less disposal. I don't like soaking first.

12/29/2009 8:00:20 PM

Pellets are much easier to clean ...and FASTER

12/29/2009 7:59:25 PM

Easy to dispose of-love the mushroom farms, easy to muck, decent price!

12/29/2009 7:55:14 PM

I love the ease of the pellets, but too expensive and creates dust everywhere, so shavings are next

12/29/2009 7:43:16 PM

my old horses leave so much hay in the stables its used as bedding started off with shavings.

12/29/2009 7:42:44 PM

love the wood pellets

12/29/2009 7:37:09 PM

sawdust

12/29/2009 7:34:19 PM

I generally use wood shavings in winter as it cuts down on ice balls in the feet.

12/29/2009 7:25:47 PM

course sawdust

12/29/2009 7:25:19 PM

Pellets provide the best soak up method, and easiest to clean up,and saves the other bedding.

12/29/2009 7:24:19 PM

i prefer pine pellets, or other pellets from bamboolike plant, however, i usually use sawdust.

12/29/2009 7:19:38 PM

sawdust

12/29/2009 7:17:39 PM

Only clean, dry wood shavings. NO walnut! Pine, cypress, cedar mix.

12/29/2009 7:16:50 PM

Sawdust. Will try pellets at some point.

12/29/2009 7:15:30 PM

Pellets are far more absorbent, and make stall cleaning far faster than using straw or shavings.

12/29/2009 7:14:50 PM

i use and prefer pine shavings. some horses will eat straw, newspaper can stain their legs :(

12/29/2009 7:02:20 PM

shredded phone books. It clumps up like cat litter when wet.

12/29/2009 6:59:07 PM

Very difficult to find good quality shavings. Some are so coarse they cause hock sores.

12/29/2009 6:57:22 PM

pine shavings

12/29/2009 6:52:05 PM

Hunt Club Bedding (cardboard) Love it!

12/29/2009 6:52:02 PM

We use chopped straw over rubber matts with some cedar shavings mixed in.

12/29/2009 6:45:28 PM

half ground paper, half wood shaving

12/29/2009 6:33:17 PM

Research studies prove that straw produces more REM sleep and better performance.

12/29/2009 6:26:26 PM

sawdust

12/29/2009 6:18:01 PM

I like the mini flakes as they are absorbent and easy to sift

12/29/2009 6:13:35 PM

Love Woody Pet. Easy to use, easy to clean and less mess

12/29/2009 5:46:13 PM

They break down nice for a nice soft place to lay and are easy to sift

12/29/2009 5:42:46 PM

the pellets fall apart when sprayed with water and makes much less waste when picking up manure.

12/29/2009 5:34:06 PM

Get a good supply from a small private mill. Otherwise none available.

12/29/2009 5:33:26 PM

I also add Stall Dry to help with the moisture issues between the morning and evening cleanings.

12/29/2009 5:29:16 PM

My yearling horse was allergic to shavings, so I had to switch to pelleted bedding; cleaning is easy

12/29/2009 5:26:27 PM

Fine wood shavings and pellets

12/29/2009 5:25:45 PM

we grow it on the farm/cost effective

12/29/2009 5:23:06 PM

Sawdust - free from mill, absorbs urine great, no heavy horse problems or would use alternate beddin

12/29/2009 5:22:31 PM

We're lucky to be near a saw mill.

12/29/2009 5:21:14 PM

wood shavings 'if' we have to use stalls.

12/29/2009 5:18:26 PM

always did and always will

12/29/2009 5:15:08 PM

I prefer wood shavings because they are more absorbent and less waste.

12/29/2009 5:12:28 PM

Easier to clean,and is cleaner when done, less waste

12/29/2009 5:11:19 PM

quik T pik a fine ground shaving so you never toss the shaving just the manure.

12/29/2009 5:09:58 PM

12/29/2009 4:45:43 PM

cedar sawdust

12/29/2009 4:42:36 PM

Pine shavings as dust free as I can get them. Have horse with COPD.

12/29/2009 4:40:13 PM

I let a thick, soft (but dry) layer build up over a rubber mat - horse loves it.

12/29/2009 4:38:03 PM

shavings makes it much easier to muck out the stalls and is a good absorbant.

12/29/2009 4:37:12 PM

do to I can get it cheaper

12/29/2009 4:36:47 PM

nafcore

12/29/2009 4:36:10 PM

pine sawdust

12/29/2009 4:35:03 PM

Wood shavings cover better but pellets are more absorbent

12/29/2009 4:31:00 PM

we mix in pelleted corn cob bedding because it is more absorbant

12/29/2009 4:30:38 PM

I also use pellets for absorption, shaving to keep down the dust.

12/29/2009 4:26:14 PM

Rice Hulls

I use rubber mats only. My horses urinate in their runs so other bedding is unneccesary.

12/29/2009 4:23:19 PM

Straw on top of wood shavings and pellets

12/29/2009 4:22:00 PM

I like wood shaving over shredded newspaper put down where it's going to get the wettest.

12/29/2009 4:20:49 PM

wood shavings clean and asorbant

12/29/2009 4:15:06 PM

rape straw, dustfree

12/29/2009 4:07:15 PM

My horse lives outdoors and sleeps on CedarRest

12/29/2009 4:03:47 PM

Low dust (one of mine has respiratory sensitivities), good absorption, but expensive.

12/29/2009 4:02:35 PM

stall stays drier, less dust

12/29/2009 4:02:31 PM

Wood shavings used over a Stallskins liner with good drainage underneath.

12/29/2009 4:00:52 PM

sawdust

12/29/2009 4:00:00 PM

Be aware of pellets, my horse ate his & died from colic.

12/29/2009 3:57:00 PM

From a pro-stall clearner's perspective, shavings are easiest

12/29/2009 3:56:44 PM

We are lucky - in bulk - can be a little dusty - just water them down

12/29/2009 3:55:19 PM

My horses eat the straw and leave their coastal hay,so it's shavings.Haven't tried the others

12/29/2009 3:48:20 PM

Nothing, my horse has a pen attached to his stall and I encourage elimination outdoors by no bedding

12/29/2009 3:47:25 PM

Just rubber mats, sometimes pellets,doesn't do "her business" in her stall

12/29/2009 3:45:45 PM

We use pine sawdust from the local mill with great success.

12/29/2009 3:45:42 PM

Bedding pellets caused colic in 3 well-fed horses

12/29/2009 3:45:37 PM

It takes less time to clean and there is less waste.

cypress mulch

12/29/2009 3:32:17 PM

I would never use anything else. It is the cheapest and easiest to clean.

12/29/2009 3:32:07 PM

easy to clean and horses stay cleaner.

12/29/2009 3:30:30 PM

Dry Nest is the best. Sun Coast is inhuman. Consistency too rough for any animal.

12/29/2009 3:30:12 PM

2"of wetted down & dried pine scented pellets seem to discourage pooping on the bedding.

12/29/2009 3:26:32 PM

You can't beat pellets - but not all are created equal.

12/29/2009 3:23:52 PM

My horse eats his bedding, so straw's the only thing he can be on! lol, he's a bit food-addicted. :p

12/29/2009 3:23:32 PM

Woodypet has reduced my bedding bill by over 1/3, + it's easier to clean than shavings. I love it!

12/29/2009 3:16:03 PM

Hands down these are the best I have used

12/29/2009 3:13:46 PM

Sometimes hard to find good clean straw

12/29/2009 3:12:31 PM

Wood shavings on rubber mats

12/29/2009 3:10:57 PM

economical, easier to clean out stalls,

12/29/2009 3:09:16 PM

Pellets when the hose isn't frozen. Otherwise cedar shavings. The pellets are great but dusty.

12/29/2009 3:08:41 PM

rubber mats over 6 inch gravel box, they love it!

12/29/2009 3:08:30 PM

Unfortunately, right now it's wood shavings over lime aggregate. Dust, dust, dust.

Rubber stall mats w/ 12"-14" of shavings. Stalls cleaned 2x daily.

12/29/2009 2:56:01 PM

Rice hulls--relatively cheap, plentiful and the horses love to lay down

12/29/2009 2:56:01 PM

All our horses are pasture horses

12/29/2009 2:54:42 PM

I put pellets down first and then put the wood shavings on top. Pellets soak up moisture.

12/29/2009 2:54:20 PM

Corn cob

Easy clean up, keeps my horses cleaner, ikeeps them warmer in winter when deeply bedded.

I prefer nice fluffy pine shavings. They're absorbent and bed the stall comfortablely.

12/29/2009 2:28:40 PM

hay pellets - easy clean up, little smell, some dusting, but no more than our west Texas sandstorms!

12/29/2009 2:26:39 PM

12/29/2009 2:26:26 PM

Easy to clean and relatively dust free!!

12/29/2009 2:25:01 PM

Horses are turned out 24/7
