We all love getting our 40 winks, and our horses are no different. If you really care about your horses, investing in the best equine bedding is a no brainer. There is a variety of different horse beddings on the market from traditional favourites such as shavings and straw to alternatives such as cardboard and hemp. For our latest blog, we are going to discuss the different choices, and which would be best for you and your horses. Four Different Choices of Equine Bedding Straw – Straw is one of the cheapest options but it is bulky and can smell, with your yard quickly resembling a compost heap. Straw also harbours fungus which can be dangerous for your horse’s respiratory system plus your horse might also eat their own bed. Shavings – Shavings are now the most commonly used horse bedding. Here at P.H Winterton, we offer three types of bedding, which can match your budget and quality requirements. Our Cheshire Choice bedding is our premium brand that is extremely durable with superb absorbency qualities. Economy Bale bedding is our budget range that is a mix of hardwood and softwood which makes it easy to cleanout. Zebra Fibre bedding is the recent addition to our catalogue, which is available in 48-60 bales per pallet and all-weather storage bags. Paper and Cardboard – Usually sold in compacted bales. When it’s time to clear the paper from your yards it is heavy to lift when wet though. Hemp – Hemp is a quite expensive material for bedding and is designed for use as a thick bed which isn’t intended to be disturbed at any time. Based on this evidence we would definitely recommend using shavings as your equine bedding solution. Want to Know More?

Here at P.H Winterton, we are firm believers using potentially waste materials to create high-quality products such as equine bedding. Our sawmill waste collection service stretches right across the country and is extremely popular in South Wales with clients in areas such as Cardiff, Gwent and Newport. If you’ve never considered using your sawmill waste, here’s the simple process – • Give P.H Winterton a call and we can arrange a trailer for you fill up with your sawmill waste, which when ready can be transported back to our premises and used for products including animal bedding and biomass fuel. For over 60 years, this has been one of our flagship services, but in recent years given the demand for renewable energy sources, we have expanded our portfolio to also provide biomass fuel to customers. Why Biomass Fuel is So Important Biomass fuel is a renewable energy source that can be used to small groups of homes, large individual houses, schools and glasshouses plus poultry huts. In 2014 the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) in the UK Government introduced the Renewable Heating Incentive which offered savings on heating people or businesses who could demonstrate the use of renewable energy sources. To this end, the Biomass Supplier List was devised, a U.K wide listing of all providers of biomass fuel, with P.H Winterton and Son the flagship company for the West Midlands and beyond. Turning Waste into Renewable Fuel P.H Winterton and Son are well-equipped to deal with any demands for sawmill waste, with a fleet of 10 trucks and three vans ready and waiting to collect your joinery waste. We have options available for both small and large joinery outfits with a 20-foot hook-lift filter skip for smaller firms and a 20-foot open-top waste skip for off-cuts wood chips, pallets and general waste.
