Littlemax Fine Bed Shavings
Littlemax Fine Bed Shavings began in 2010 in response to the demand for high-performance bed shavings that come in a lighter form. Littlemax is a dust-free and hygienic bedding for your horse’s stable & provides all of the same natural pine benefits found in Bedmax. It has been found that this product is much easier to move around, lasts just as long & may be a little more economic.
Bedding is potentially the biggest source of dust in the stable, and dust can impair or seriously damage your horse’s respiratory system. Littlemax 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 Littlemax to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
The shavings help drain urine from the surface to be absorbed by smaller shavings at a lower level. This keeps the surface dry and reduces the risk ammonia poses to your horse’s lungs and hooves.
Littlemax shavings help create a clean, supportive bed that encourages horses to lie down and rest, and cushions hocks and other joints from damage.
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.
Maintaining hygiene effectively is crucial and difficult. Littlemax shavings are made from fresh pine because pine offers unique antibacterial action against harmful bacteria and fungi. The shavings are also dried at sterilising temperatures during production.
