How to use Equinola
Approximate guidelines for laying initial bed in a 12×12 stable or similar
- Ensure stable/rubber matting is clean and dry before laying bed.
- Use about 4-6 bales depending on required depth of bed.
- Use shavings fork to loosen the tightly packed bedding.
- Ideal base is around 6-8 inches deep.
- Some owners also like banks of about 12-18 inches around the walls.
- A deeper bed manages moisture more efficiently and requires less replacement bedding.
- Use a similar depth of bed if using rubber matting to ensure your horse’s comfort.
- Equinola absorbs moisture, clumps together and sinks to the base of the bed leaving the top layer of bedding clean, dry and warm. Therefore Equinola works best when deep littered.
- You can leave the wet bedding in for a long as you wish – some people remove it daily/weekly/monthly or even yearly!
- Skip out daily, and remove any droppings throughout the day if the horse is staying in.
- Keep the bed as firm and level as possible.
- Top up bed with approximately 1-2 bales of Equinola per week (depending on the cleanliness of the horse).
- Take out wet patches as often as you require but Equinola works at it’s optimum when the wet patches are left in for at least a few days.
- If base of bed starts to get too deep you can remove the top layer of wet as often as you require.
