Best Horse Bedding for Easy Mucking Out

If you own horses, one of the important decisions you will need to make is what type of bedding you will use.

Horse bedding is important for a number of reasons. It provides warmth and comfort for the animals, prevents injury, and encourages horses to lie down. Using bedding material that is safe, soft, absorbent, and hygienic is crucial.

However, if the bedding is not managed properly, it could lead to complications such as respiratory issues for the horses.

The importance of regular mucking out

In managing horse bedding, mucking is usually the main method used to ensure the area is clean and satisfactory for the animal. Mucking on a regular basis, daily if possible, is fundamental for the health and welfare of horses.

Mucking involves using a shavings fork or rake to comb through the bedding to remove droppings and soiled or urine-soaked bedding. A stall left unattended can lead to a buildup of toxic ammonia and harmful bacteria.

Easy mucking out with mini-flake pine shavings

If you are looking for a way to simplify the mucking out process, you should consider mini-flake pine shavings.

With mini flakes, when there is a wet spot in the bedding, the flakes will clump together to ensure easy and complete removal of the soaked area. Also, the small particle size of the mini flakes means more of the shavings will sift through the fork or rake when mucking, which will ensure that a lot less material is thrown away. Less waste is translated into savings as your bedding will last longer, leading to less frequent purchases.
