5 Top tips for using our Miscanthus Horse bedding

4th November 2019

Heavy rain fall has spread through the UK already this autumn. In October, the entire UK averaged a whopping 13 days of rain, totalling 92 millimetres (3.6 inches). Wet weather means muddy fields, wet yards and drenched turnout rugs.

Not only is Miscanthus horse bedding three times more absorbent than wood shavings, it’s ultra-hygienic. Read our five pointers for getting the best use out of our bedding, to keep your horse happy through the soggy months…

 

1. STORAGE
Storing in a dry place is always preferable, but the bags do protect it against some damp. The bedding is very compact and easy to stack.
2. APPLICATION
Split the bag open down the longest edge to pour out.
3.USAGE
2-3 bags should do one stable, but it depends on peoples/horses’ preferences
4.UP KEEP
Once the stable is bedded down as required, you only need to pick out soiled patches and top up with bedding throughout the week.
5.DISPOSAL
Miscanthus horse bedding breaks down in approximately half the time of shavings and does not remove nitrogen from the land in the same way as wood shavings do.
