Start spring spotless!

With spring on the horizon it is the perfect time to schedule in a ‘big stable clean’ in preparation for the season ahead. After a long, damp and cold winter, your horse will undoubtedly have spent longer in, mucking out may have been rushed to maximise daylight hours and your stable will probably have seen cleaner days!

The stable environment inevitably gets dusty, damp and dirty over the winter period - that is unavoidable - yet there are many simple steps that can be taken to ensure it remains a safe, hygienic and healthy environment for your horse to stay!

Start with a spruce up. Choose a dry and breezy day to make sure you give your stable plenty of time to dry and air. Remove all your horse’s bedding, buckets and equipment from the stable so you can get sweeping, and remove the dust and dirt that have built up over the winter. Sweep the floor thoroughly and remove every last bit of bedding, making sure you get into all the corners, use a dustpan and brush for those fiddly areas!

Take a damp cloth to the corners and remove all the dusty cobwebs as they hold bacteria and debris, then wash and disinfect the floor and walls, choose a product that eradicates ammonia and leaves a fresh, but not overpowering odour.

The only thing left to do now is lay your horse’s bed! Nedz provides the perfect balance of absorbency, ease of use and health benefits by pairing technological advances in manufacturing and dust extraction, with the traditional benefits of straw. Both Nedz Original and Nedz Pro provide a super absorbent alternative to wood based products with the addition of our exclusive Natural Nedz formula for cleanliness, and exceptional biodegradability.

Natural Nedz is a unique, organic formula made exclusively for Nedz to ensure that whilst your horse is cosy and comfortable and your box is quick and easy to muck out, the environment is also clean and hygienic. By including Manuka and Cade Oil, Natural Nedz offers anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties, whilst providing a fresh and clean smelling aroma, which eliminates odours, particularly ammonia, and also discourages insects and bugs.

Nedz Original is made from traditional wheat straw and gives owners a classic bed, without the classic straw related problems, meanwhile Nedz Pro is made from rape straw which offers a quick, easy and extremely absorbent stable base which only needs mucking out fully once a week.
