How to make the perfect Lavender Shavings bed:
You can make a fresh Bed-Down bed on a clean rubber mat or conventional stable floor, or gradually combine it with other bedding as part of your usual maintenance routine. You’ll be able to appreciate the full product benefits once you’ve removed all old, existing bedding.
How many bags will I need to create a new bed?
You’ll need about 6 Classic Bales for a typical 12’ x 12’ (3.6m x 3.6m) stable. This will create a deep comfy bed once the bedding is spread out and fluffed up.
How do I replace an existing bed with new Bed-Down bales?
Add new bedding to the outside of the bed, gradually moving existing bedding towards the centre as more new bedding is added. Keep adding new bedding to the outside of the bed until all old bedding has been removed gradually from the middle.
What’s the most economical way to maintain a clean, dry bed in my stable?
- To maintain a good depth, add 1-1.5 fresh Classic Bales per week (depending on your horse’s needs).
- Remove droppings and wet, and tidy the bed daily, remembering to fluff the bedding in the areas you’ve cleaned.
- Top up with fresh Bed-Down bedding weekly.
You can easily split a Classic 20kg Bale in half by following the instructions on the side of the packaging.
