PREMIUM HORSE AND SMALL ANIMAL BEDDING
We all know that the smallest things can make a big difference including your choice of bedding. Our pine shavings (medium blend and large flake) are designed to help your horse perform its best. All of our products are 100% pine, all-natural and made specifically to keep your horse healthy, happy and comfortable in the stall. Serving the southeast since 2004, ask for our products by name at your local feed and ranch supply store. Export is also available.

10 cu ft premium large flake with low dust content and optimum moisture content for maximum cushion (hock protection), absorbency and hygiene.
Our medium flake kiln dried shavings blend provides super absorbent and comfortable bedding for your animals. The smaller flake provides a great base to absorb moisture and the larger flakes that are blended in provide great cushion for your animal.
Our kiln dried, environmentally friendly pine pellets are renowned for their performance by top trainers and stable managers. Made from 100% pine with no chemicals or additives, they offer a healthy, economical bedding solution for your horses by minimizing waste.
The main purpose of pine bedding is to provide a healthy stall that provides sufficient cushion to prevent hock abrasion and to quickly absorb urine and moisture. Shavings with a broad product size distribution will perform better than all small or large pieces; smaller pieces offer more surface area and absorbency while larger flakes offer a cushion for the horse and a clean appearance in the barn. Pine has naturally occurring, odor absorbing oils. These are what give pine its great aromatic scent and they also have antibacterial plus ammonia reducing properties.
Ability to “pick” or clean the stall with a minimum of waste.
Minimal dust, while some dust is created through the compressing, handling and drying of pine wood, superior products use screening or dust collection systems in the production process.
A well ventilated barn or stable area; this will help keep the stall air fresh and will discourage the growth of mold or mildew.
Daily cleaning of the stall.
If you smell ammonia, caused by the breakdown of organic matter in the shavings, manure and hay, increase the amount of shavings used until the odor is eliminated.
"I would like to share some of the experiences I had with the shavings, and I highly recommend using this product. The stall used was a 10x10 ft stall, so calculating about 3 large bags would cover the entire stall. The pine shavings absorbed the waste of the horses very well, they also had a nice scent. The storage of the shavings were very nice as well, when we put them in the stall it stayed together until spread out. These are some of the reasons I suggest this product."
