Bedding down the early days

Putting in the foundations for good health at the beginning of an equine’s life is of utmost importance. The groundwork that is in place in those first few days, weeks and months will set up your youngster for the future – and this means everything from nutrition to handling, and even bedding…

Creating safe and hygienic bedding for your mare to foal on is vital – this will, after all, be the first surface that your foal lays down on – and if it is not of utmost quality it could cause problems later on. Breathing in moulds and spores, or being subject to ammonia soaked damp bedding could potentially lead to poor respiratory health.

With well over a decade’s worth of experience in the bedding industry, Nedz provide all horses and ponies, including mares and youngstock, with comfortable, hygienic, biodegradable andcost effective bedding.

Many breeders and stud farms choose Nedz Original or Nedz Pro to provide all the benefits of traditional straw - comfort, warmth and support – whilst also offering an extremely absorbent, easy to muck out, quick rotting and hygienic alternative to traditional straw beds.

The raw materials used in Nedz Original and Nedz Pro are handpicked for exceptional quality, before being sterilised, chopped and put through a rigorous dust extraction process. The chopped straw is then treated with an exclusive Natural Nedz formulation, made from totally organic ingredients including Manuka, Aloe Vera and Silver, that offer anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-insecticidal properties creating a hygienic environment for your breeding stock.

Once in place, Nedz Original and Nedz Pro both provide a sturdy, comfortable and supportive base, which is perfect for mares and foals when lying down or spending long periods in the stable. The exceptional absorbency means no sodden wet patches and virtually no ammonia levels, leading to a healthier environment for your valuable breeding stock.
