LITTLEMAX Fine Shavings were introduced in response to a demand for shavings that had all the dust free, hygienic, natural pine benefits of BEDMAX, but in a lighter, finer form.
Owners who trialled LITTLEMAX have reported that it performs exactly as they had hoped. Like BEDMAX, it addresses all the health and welfare issues of keeping your horse in the stable, and for owners it’s proved extremely easy and time-saving to use and maintain.
Dust Removed During Manufacture
Bedding is potentially the biggest source of dust in the stable, and dust can impair or seriously damage your horse’s respiratory system. BEDMAX has one of the lowest levels of dust and spores on the market.
Provides Support For Hooves
Your horse’s hooves need firm, resilient support. Our larger flakes provide it. We also dry BEDMAX to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
Our larger shavings help drain urine from the surface to be absorbed by smaller shavings at a lower level. This keeps the surface dry and reduces the risk ammonia poses to your horse’s lungs and hooves.
Cushions Hocks and Joints
BEDMAX shavings help create a clean, supportive bed that encourages horses to lie down and rest, and cushions hocks and other joints from damage.
Horses in stables need to be able to lie down to achieve deep REM sleep. A comfortable, clean, natural bed enables horses to lie down and rest properly and safely.
Maintaining hygiene effectively is crucial and difficult. We make BEDMAX shavings from fresh pine because pine offers unique antibacterial action against harmful bacteria and fungi. We also dry our shavings at sterilising temperatures during production.
