These highly absorbent and hygienic wood pellets, made from locally sourced virgin Scottish timber, are dust free, easy to handle and work out very economically once you've got your system set up. When you fist spead the pellets, you spray a little water on them to make them fluff up, which bulks them out considerably and gives them their high absorbency. They're also free of allergens and additives, plus the wood's natural resins produce less ammonia and a pleasant faint 'forest' scent.
Because the wood pellets are so absorbent, the urine remains in a localised patch, enabling it to be removed easily with a shovel. The stable stays cleaner for longer, so you use less bedding...ergo, a smaller dung heap as well!
The Verdo horse bedding pellets were described in more detail in Horse and Hound when they were first launched and we are seeing more and more positive comments about them, as are Verdo.
The video below gives you some good information about the use of wood pellets for horse bedding:
We also would like to get your feedback. Have you used Verdo horse bedding pellets, or both types of pellets? How do they perform? What advice would you give to other horse owners?
If you're ordering horse bedding pellets by the pallet load you make considerable savings (around 10%) by buying from the Wood Fuel Co-operative's Membership Scheme. We can deliver UK-wide, or if you are within reach of Dumfries, you can store your order with us and collect as and when you need it, so saving on delivery costs.
