How to Use

How to use Horsemate

Step 1.

Lay bags on stable floor. For a 4 x 4 stable you will require approx 12-15 bags.

Step 2.

Carefully cut all bags from corner to corner. To activate, each bag will require 5-7 litres of water. Pour the water into the bag opening and the pellets will swell. Within 10-15 minutes the pellets will have expanded to around three times their original size.

Step 3.

Empty the bedding onto the stable floor. The pellets will have become soft and fluffy – a perfect bedding environment.

Step 4.

Spread evenly with a rake or fork.

Additional Information

Mucking Out:
Remove solids and completely saturated patches daily. Horsemate bedding separates from manure, so there is less bedding wasted.

Maintenance:
One to two bags per week will be sufficient to replenish lost bedding. Simply sprinkle new bedding with a hose or activate in a wheelbarrow. For a particularly wet horse use less water on replenishment bags. In the warmer weather we suggest dampening your bed down with a fine spray of water. Ensure pellets are completely dissolved before horse use.
