Keep Your Horse Healthy With Quality Equine Bedding

By on Jul 8, 2019 in Blog, Equine Bedding |

We don’t have to tell you how important it is to keep stalls in top condition for horses. And this is particularly true when it comes to equine bedding. But there’s so much information flying around in regards to the do’s and don’ts of equine care.  How can you be sure you’re doing the right thing for your horse?

In this blog post, we’re going to look at ways you can keep your horse comfortable and healthy. And give you a rundown of the best equine bedding available in Staffordshire, Cheshire and Nottingham and beyond.

Air Quality and Equine Bedding

When it comes to air quality in stables, feed and bedding are the main sources of airborne dust. And this dust can be made up of a whole variety of matter including bacteria, faeces, and viruses. While there is no way to totally eliminate this from stables entirely, there are a number of things you can do to manage the amounts. This is crucial, especially for horses who may be suffering from respiratory disorders, as symptoms of these diseases can be exacerbated by the inhalation of airborne dust.

The main way to control the levels of dust in your stable is through proper ventilation. Ensuring air can flow in and out of stalls is vital to maintaining a healthy environment for your horses. Ventilation comes from sidewall openings, doors and windows. So check these remain unobstructed, particularly during the summer months.

Aside from ventilation, another aspect to consider is the dust content of your equine bedding. Airborne dust levels are at their highest while mucking out your stables. So a good place to start in keeping your horse healthy is by removing them from the stall during cleaning. What’s more, high-quality bedding, such as the Cheshire Choice Equine Bedding from P.H.Winterton & Son, will also reduce the risk of dust problems.
