an ideal bedding for horses and ponies
Purpose made large flake pine shavings for horses…
Bedmax shavings are large flake pine shavings, purpose made to provide an ideal bedding for horses and ponies.
They are made at three dedicated Bedmax production plants in the UK, from fresh timber sourced from renewable UK forestry. Bedmax shavings were developed to offer owners a natural bedding that would help address the issues that threaten the health and welfare of horses in stables.
Natural • SUSTAINABLE • RESPONSIBLE
Minimise the Risks
Bedmax shavings are made to a unique formula to offer you a combination of benefits that help you combat the big risks that threaten your horse’s health and wellbeing in the stable.
Bedding is potentially the biggest source of dust in the stable, and dust can impair or seriously damage your horse’s respiratory system. Bedmax has one of the lowest levels of dust and spores on the market.
Your horse’s hooves need firm, resilient support. Our larger flakes provide it. We also dry Bedmax to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
Maintaining hygiene effectively is crucial and difficult. We make Bedmax shavings from fresh pine because pine offers unique antibacterial action against harmful bacteria and fungi. We also dry our shavings at sterilising temperatures during production.
Bedmax shavings help create a clean, supportive bed that encourages horses to lie down and rest, and cushions hocks and other joints from damage.
Poor bedding and bedding management exposes horses to greater contact with ammonia, which can damage the respiratory system and attack the structure of the hoof.
Horses in stables need to be able to lie down to achieve deep REM sleep. A comfortable, clean, natural bed enables horses to lie down and rest properly and safely.
