Q: How many bags do I need to make a stable using Pellet Bed?
This will depend on how you like your bed. As a guide we suggest 6-8 bags to start a 12ft x 12ft stable. If you like banks then 10 may be needed. Pellet bed can be slightly more expensive to set up but due to the clumping and quick absorption the waste will be far less and you will save money on the regular up keep.
Some of our customers are using pellet bed on its own, others are using it on top of rubber matting, some are using it as a cushioning absorbent base with straw on top. It is a very versatile bedding option.

Q: I feed Alfalfa pellets at the moment could I use your feed pellets instead?
These are similar products however most other makes of feed pellets are flash dried in a kiln this can make the grass more brittle and can be dusty, it can damage the nutrients in the product. Our grass is naturally sun dried and retains all its goodness. The product also goes through a dust extractor machine before bagging. Typically our timothy pellets are lower in digestible energy than others (8.42mj/kg). Our Meadow range has more energy as expected with 9.13 mj/kg and our Rye grass has 9.25 mj/kg. The energy requirements of your horse should be the deciding factor on what products to feed and easy pack caters for these. Our Timothy range should cater for most horses requirement, with the Meadow range for those that do more work or compete with their horses.
