Why Pellet Bedding?
Odor Neutralizer: Bedding pellets take in moisture 4x faster than shavings. Our kiln dried pine pellets bond with ammonia to destroy odors naturally by neutralizing on contact.
Safe and Natural: Our bedding pellets are composed of only high quality softwood fibers. There are no chemicals, additives, or binders. Our bedding pellets are sterile; free of mold or bacteria!
Space Savers: Due to the very tightly compacted nature of wood pellets, the bags take up minimal space. Once they are spread and wetted properly, they expand into fluffy, absorbent bedding.
How To Prepare Wood Pellet Horse Bedding
You’ll need a bucket of water, a pair of scissors, and a bag of premium softwood pellets.
To get started, lay the bags spaced out on the floor where you need your horse bedding. (The video below shows the process on just one bag. Just repeat these steps for however many bags you’re using.)
Use scissors to carefully cut a cross shape in the plastic, then tuck the flaps inside the bag.
Pour a bucket of water into the opening. Warm water will speed the process up a bit, but cold water works just as well.(Warm water takes about 20 minutes to fully change the pellets into bedding, and cold water will take approximately 60 minutes.)
Wait for the water to fully absorb into the pellets. You’ll see them expand to about 4 times the original size! Once the pellets have completed the absorption – just flip the bag, dump out the fluffy sawdust, and rake it into even bedding.
A standard 40 pound bag of softwood pellets will cover a space about 5.5 feet by 5.5 feet, with a depth of about 1.5 inches. Use however many bags you need to cover your horse stall, and to reach the depth you desire.
