Shavings ! how much .. ?!

 well obviously im moving on wednesday and have got to put a bed down.. shavings to be used.. 


they're around £8 a bale here. . just not sure how many I'm going to need, stables rather large! I have sourced a rubber mat which will help, however i still like a nice deep bed. Going to be expensive! 


Why are horses so expensive? ha ha ha.. bank will be back to 0p by thursday ! :(

Well RB I did reply but my post appears to have been deleted!  It was definitely showing immediately after I posted...ho hum.  Maybe someone will let me know why? Was it because I named a product??

In a 12x12 stable I think you will need 8-10 bales to get a really good deep bed with banks.  This year just gone, I used wood pellets - needed about 12 bags to get started and then only a bag (2 max) per week from then on - at a cost of about £4 per bag!  It was excellent.  If you google wood pellets, the second sponsored name is the one we used and they have a video on their website telling you how to use them.  Saved me a shed load of money as one of my mares is very wet and used to get through 2-3 bales of shavings per week at a cost of about £24!
