Horse stall bedding wood shavings

Blue Spanvall

About

Historically, the coarse horse stall bedding originate from Sweden, where the coarsest and best wood shavings for horses have always been used as bedding for horse stalls. Manufactured from the best quality softwood which have been heat-treated. Their coarse structure makes the shavings particularly well-suited for horses, as the shavings are free of pointy objects which may be trapped in and irritate the sulcus and the high absorbent horse bedding lessen the risk of sulcus thrush.

Coarse shavings are the equestrian’s absolute first choice in bedding. At Spanvall, we call our coarse shavings Blue Spanvall, and these shavings are widely used, including as deep bedding for cattle. However, they are especially well-suited for horses and poultry. Using coarse wood chip shavings gives you an airier and, thus, bouncier base for your horses, contrary to more fine sawdust horse bedding. When applying Spanvall shavings, you create and discover a brighter and more welcoming stable bed environment, and the stall will look nice.

With its longer durability, it is a great alternative to cheap horse bedding, in pine and other materials. Our customers are often impressed when comparing it with other materials for sale from other suppliers, as it is more cost-effective in the long term. All our products can be delivered in bulk buy bales, with orders of practically unlimited size.

Spanvall Plant Fibre

About Spanvall Plant Fibre

Plant fibre has a very high absorbency and goes a long way. The low pH-value of the peat is gentle on the hooves of the horse and, thus, reduces the occurrence of sulcus thrush while also fixing the smell of ammonia. This provides an improved stable climate without dust and odour nuisances. The horse stands on a dry, stable, and springy base. Plant fibre may be combined with all other types of bedding – as the base of a straw-covered stall or topping a base of wooden pellets or shavings – as this provides the stall with a lighter and brighter look. The peat bedding also works well as a deep bedding for cattle, as it forms a firm, springy and heat-insulating base.

How to use Plant Fibre

Clean the stall

On first use in a standard, approximately 12m2 stall, distribute seven to nine bales evenly in each stall. Aerate for easier handling and water if very dry.

Remove horse droppings on a daily basis and wet stains as required. Maintenance: Approximately one bale per stall per week. Note that the base bedding may be left for six to twelve months.

Advantages

  • High absorbency, up to ten times its own weight at 35 percent humidity
  • Firm, springy and heat-insulating base
  • Gentle on the horse’s hooves
  • Fixes ammonia
  • Minimal consumption, as the peat does not often need replacing
  • Less requirement for additional treatment and less space required for storage and dung heap
  • Quickly composted into valuable garden compost
  • Good stable climate for animals and people
  • Good for horses suffering from allergies
