Excel's 50%/50% blend combined with a natural lemon scent which discourages munching and makes it the perfect every day bedding.
Bed-Down Excel Equine Bedding
Bed-Down Excel horse bedding has been developed to utilise the advantages of both straw – drainage and durability – and softwood shavings – absorbency – in one easy to use product.
Bed-Down Excel spreads up to 1/3rd further than an equivalent sized bale of softwood shavings and by chopping the wheat straw Bed-Down Excel is easier to use than traditional baled long straw. This makes Bed-Down Excel a warm, durable and comfortable bedding for your horse and great value for you. As Bed-Down Excel undergoes our unique, multiple dust extraction process, EASY BREATHE™, you can be sure that bale after bale is clean and consistent as well as being suitable for horses that suffer from respiratory disorders. We also add a pleasant lemon fragrance as standard to act as an effective unappetiser and to help to keep the stable fresh.
Excel is made from sustainable wheat straw and the shavings are a by-product of the wood mill industry. Excel will degrade in approximately 4-8 months and, as it is very absorbent, waste is kept to a minimum making your muck heap smaller. It also makes a brilliant combination with Bed-Down Absorb.
Bed-Down Excel is also great for poultry and game birds.
How to make the perfect Excel bed
You can make a fresh Bed-Down bed on a clean rubber mat or conventional stable floor, or gradually combine with other bedding as part of your usual maintenance routine. You’ll be able to appreciate the full product benefits once you’ve removed all existing bedding.
How many bags will I need to create a new bed?
You’ll need about 6 Classic Bales for a typical 12’ x 12’ (3.6m x 3.6m) stable. This will create a deep comfy bed once the bedding is spread out and fluffed up.
How do I replace an existing bed with new Bed-Down bales?
Add new bedding to the outside of the bed, gradually moving existing bedding towards the centre as more new bedding is added. Keep adding new bedding to the outside of the bed until all old bedding has been removed.
What’s the most economical way to maintain a clean, dry bed in my stable?
- To maintain a good depth, add 1-1.5 fresh Classic Bales per week (depending on your horse’s needs).
- Remove droppings and tidy the bed daily, remembering to fluff the bedding in the areas you’ve cleaned.
- Remove wet bedding patches weekly, topping up with fresh Bed-Down bedding.
You can easily split a Classic 20kg Bale in half by following the instructions on the side of the packaging – or add extra freshness and convenience by using a Handy 10kg Bale.
