I decided to write this article to document what I have found to be true regarding various types of bedding for your horse stalls.
WHAT I CURRENTLY USE!
I currently use pelleted bedding! I started with straw but used shavings when I moved Drogo to our current farm.
I have found from personal experience straw works well, as you can completely break down the stall every morning to give your horse a sterile stall. That being said, I find it is a necessity to strip the stall each morning when using straw. When using pellets, you are able to clean out the stall as needed. Out of the three beddings tested, I alternate in using straw and pellets. I have found that shavings are not my favorite, as they are quite messy and I find myself nearly stripping the stall as if it were straw. To me, it is more cost effective and time efficient to use pellets.
