Ethos Eucalyptus Miscanthus Bedding 20kg Carbon Negative Horse Bedding - Eucalyptus, a mild decongestant.
Ethos Eucalyptus Miscanthus Bedding is a completely natural, sustainable alternative to wood shavings and other forms of horse bedding. It has been created with the welfare of horses in mind and is clean, hygienic and the most environmentally friendly equine bedding product on the market!
Miscanthus is ideal for horse and pet bedding - unlike many wood-based bedding products, it dries naturally in the field, which guarantees an extremely low (10-15%) moisture content.
Miscanthus is often considered a good option for horse bedding due to several advantageous qualities:
- Absorbency: Miscanthus bedding has a high absorbency rate, which means it can quickly soak up moisture, such as urine and sweat, helping to keep the horse's living area dry and comfortable. This can be especially important in preventing skin issues, hoof problems, and respiratory conditions in horses.
- Dust-Free: Miscanthus bedding is generally very low in dust, which is essential for maintaining good respiratory health in horses. Dusty bedding can lead to respiratory problems and allergies in horses, so a low-dust bedding option like Miscanthus is preferable.
- Reduced Allergenic Potential: Horses can be sensitive to various allergens found in traditional straw or hay-based bedding. Miscanthus bedding, being relatively allergen-free, can be a better choice for horses with allergies or sensitivities.
- Insulation and Comfort: Miscanthus has insulating properties that help keep horses warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. This ensures that horses are comfortable and less stressed, which is crucial for their overall well-being.
- Reduced Waste: Miscanthus is known for its longevity. It lasts longer than many other bedding materials, which can result in less frequent bedding changes and reduced overall waste, making it a more cost-effective option.
- Sustainable: Miscanthus is a perennial grass that is easy to grow and harvest, making it a sustainable bedding option. It requires minimal pesticide and fertilizer use, and it has a low environmental impact compared to some other bedding materials.
- Easy to Dispose Of: Miscanthus bedding can be composted or used as mulch once it's no longer suitable for bedding. It decomposes relatively quickly and can be a valuable addition to gardening or farming operations.
