an ideal bedding for horses and ponies
Purpose made fine and light pine shavings for horses…
We began making Littlemax in 2010 in response to a demand for smaller, lighter flakes which would offer the hygiene and low dust benefits which we are renowned for. Owners who use Littlemax know that it addresses all the health and welfare issues related to keeping your horse in the stable. For owners it is extremely easy to use, manage and maintain and is an excellent timesaver.
Littlemax shavings are made at our three dedicated production plants across the UK from fresh timber sourced from renewable British forestry.
Natural • SUSTAINABLE • RESPONSIBLE
Minimise the Risks
Bedding is one of the biggest sources of dust in the stable. We aim to screen out and vacuum extract as much potentially breathable dust as humanly possible to reduce this risk to the lowest possible level.
It’s an old cliché, but no hoof, no horse. Littlemax is supportive under-hoof as well as being dried to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
Littlemax shavings are made predominantly from naturally antibacterial pine, and they’re dried at sterilising temperatures to help you keep your stable as hygienic as possible.
Littlemax provides a supportive bed which protects horses’ hocks and other joints from damage when lying down.
Littlemax removes urine from the surface of the bed to be absorbed at the base. This reduces exposure to harmful ammonia which damages horses’ lungs and hooves.
A clean, supportive bed encourages horses to lie down safely in order to achieve necessary REM sleep.
Why Choose Littlemax?
Many horse owners choose Littlemax simply because they prefer a finer, lighter shaving. We launched Littlemax to provide these owners with a product they could rely on that offers the same assurance of ultra-low dust levels and consistent high standards of quality.
