BEST BEDDING

ONE BAG OF PRODUCT TURNS INTO THREE BAGS OF BEDDING

WOODY PROFESSIONAL ANIMAL BEDDING instantly expands from the granulated form it comes in to three times the volume of Fluffy Sawdust Bedding as it absorbs urine, or if you sprinkle hot water on it.

HORSE JOURNAL, The Product, Care and Service Guide For People Who Love Horses, and is the most trusted publication for horse owners, published a featured article, Vol, 8, # 8, August 2001 issue, titled: BEST BEDDING: WOODY PET BY A NOSE. Several innovative products as well as some traditional bedding products were compared in this test. The following is just one excerpt from this four page article: "the nod overall has to go to Woody Pet for its lower overall cost, its minimal waste, and the fact that we found you can clean a Woody Pet bedded stall in record time."

THE PRODUCT

Raw White Soft Wood Shavings and Sawdust undergoes extreme processing which extracts most of the resins, oils, tars, acids and water from the wood fiber. Exiting the milling process the product is completely sterile in granulated form and has become an extreme absorbent. Looks like, but does not taste like Granola. We have eliminated the Dangerous Aromatic Hydrocarbons which cause Hives and Respiratory Irritation (Coughing) for horses. There are NO ADDITIVES of any kind in this product, it is 100% Biodegradable Sterile Wood Fiber.

Before and After WoodyPet

COMPARED TO WOOD SHAVINGS

Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding will expand to about three times the depth and transform from the granulated state into Fluffy Sawdust Bedding almost instantly as it absorbs urine. You want to bring the bedding moister content up to a point where the bedding feels quite damp to the touch of your hands but will not transfer into the knee of your blue jeans when you kneel on it. This will take from one to two weeks depending on how much urine the horse is adding to it. Keeping the bedding damp will eliminate the possibility of dust and both wet and dry hoof problems. So here's the difference: DO NOT REMOVE THE WET SPOTS until the bedding throughout the entire stall feels damp. Just pick out the manure which is very easy because the finer bedding material will fall through the tines of your fork. After you pick out the manure, mix the wet bedding with the dry bedding throughout the entire stall. Mixing ensures that the dryer bedding will absorb the excessive urine out of the saturated bedding. This allows the odor to be locked into the bedding which greatly reduces ammonia odor in your stalls. After the first week or two you start adding about one bag per week to each stall, after you get used to this new way of life you may never have to strip a stall again. On average one pallet containing 65 bags will last one horse in one stall for one year. For stall management in detail click on New User Instructions.

COMPOSTING

The Uria in the Urine is what begins the decomposition process. Because the wood fibers in our product are much smaller than shavings and sawdust, and because the Uria is not diluted by resins, oils, tar, and excessive water as it is in shavings and sawdust, it begins the decomposition process immediately, and decomposes much faster than shavings and sawdust.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY HORSES EAT THE BEDDING?

The first thing that most horses do when they are introduced to Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding is taste it. But because all of the tasty stuff has been removed it really tastes terrible, and it instantly dries out their mouth. So far we have not had a single report of a horse either continuing to eat our product, or in trouble from doing so.

NO INSIDE STORAGE NECESSARY

Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding as seen below is conveniently shipped on standard 40 inch by 48 inch pallets. The pallets are shrink wrapped and over bagged with a plastic bag that covers the entire pallet and then shrink wrapped again. Ideal for outside storage if necessary, however we do recommend that you store them under a tarpaulin just in case.

WHY SMALLER LIGHTER BAGS

Our survey tells us that about 90 % of Horse Folks are Women and in most cases the kids help out with the chores. Because of this we spend more money packaging Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding in 30 LB. bags (smaller and lighter than most other bedding manufacturers) just to make it easier for Mom and the Kids.

SOLVING ODOR PROBLEMS

If Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding is left over saturated with urine for too long a time it cannot keep the ammonia odor absorbed. If this happens the ammonia odor will be released and the bedding will turn dark or red and must be removed immediately to eliminated the ammonia odor. Sometimes this happens in the beginning when folks are still learning the proper management of the bedding and is overcome in time.

SOLVING DUST PROBLEMS

Smaller pieces of bedding can easily become airborne with enough air movement if the bedding is not kept damp enough. Ideally the bedding should feel damp to the touch but not transfer into the knee of your blue jeans when you kneel on it. Keeping the bedding damp eliminates the dust as well as both wet & dry hoof problems.

SOLVING MUCKING OUT AND STALL CLEANING PROBLEMS

Because Woody Pet Professional Animal Bedding is composed of mostly smaller particles than most other bedding you can use a much finer tines fork for picking which will get most of the smaller pieces of manure out, speeding up cleaning time and leaving a much cleaner stall.
