We have very recently covered why it is important to provide your cows with comfy and sufficient bedding. So, we thought why not do the same for your horses. Let’s look at some of main advantages of high quality horse bedding in Derbyshire. You would make sure that your bedding is clean and comfy wouldn’t you? So why should this be any different for horses? Horses don’t naturally need soft and comfy bedding, however, at PH Winterton being a provider of high quality horse shavings in Staffordshire we argue that ensuring you have adequate equine bedding is of the utmost importance.

This is especially true during the winter months when the UK can see an over abundance of rain and storms. Luckily, horse shavings can absorb a lot of...Read Moreabout Do You Need Horse Bedding in Derbyshire?
