Keeping your stable spick and span

The wet and chilly months often bring about an increase in the amount of time that equines spend stabled in an effort to guard against the harsher conditions. This is not always the most enjoyable time to be a horse owner, as keeping the stable clean and tidy can seem to take twice as long, but good ventilation and tip top hygiene are key to maintaining your horse’s health and condition over the winter months.

A build up of dust, mould and mildew spores and ammonia can increase a horse’s chances of developing a respiratory problem, so it is important to choose a suitable, top quality bedding. Both Nedz Original and Nedz Pro are virtually dust free, creating a hygienic, non-toxic environment for your horse whilst stabled. Nedz bedding rivals shavings for absorbency, helping to decrease ammonia build up to support a healthy respiratory system and save you time completing the chores, whilst maintaining the cosy feel and appearance of a traditional straw bed!

Nedz Pro, made from Oil Seed Rape Straw, is a cost-effective, hygienic bedding, which works best when deep littered, creating a sturdy yet comfortable bed that does not shift as your horse walks on it, and only requires a full muck out once a week. The high level of absorbency is combined with the exclusive Natural Nedz formula, which contains Manuka, Cade Oil, Aloe Vera and Silver to provide anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic and anti-fungal properties making it ideal for horses with sensitive skin and those who wish to create the most hygienic stable environment.

Not only does Nedz help to create a hygienic, safe and non-toxic stable environment for your horse, it also biodegrades within two to three months and is safe to use as a fertiliser, helping to keep your yard clean and your muck heap easily managed, as well as saving you time on the yard chores and money on getting your muck heap removed!
