HERE WE RESPOND YOUR QUESTIONS

Most people switch to an alternative bedding because their horse suffers from a respiratory problem. It may have developed a cough because it is allergic to straw dust or ammonia vapour, or because it has developed a general dust and mould allergy.

Other reasons for switching to a different type of horse bedding:

  • Consequences of the horse eating too much straw (overweight, bloating, colic etc.)
  • Hoof and skin problems (poor horn quality, thrush, cracked heels etc.)
  • The need for a firm yet elastic bedding after tendon and ligament injuries
  • Poor quality straw – after a bad harvest the only straw available is often dusty, dirty and, in some cases mouldy

1) REMOVE OLD BEDDING

Remove all the old horse bedding from the stable. The floor should be swept clean.

2) CLEAN THOROUGHLY

Mix Boxengold® LIQUID CLEANER with water according to the instructions on the pack and distribute it generously on the stable floor. Leave the microorganisms to work: after 2 to 3 hours all odours will have been eliminated.

3) PUT IN NEW BEDDING

Put an adequate amount of Boxengold® Ecostreu bedding in the box. Ideally, it should have a depth of around 15 cm (approx. 8 bales for a standard-size stable) over the entire floor.

4) SKIP OUT & SAVE

You have to skip out every day, but you can leave the wet areas in the stable for up to 10 days. Then simply push the dry bedding on top aside and remove the wet bedding underneath. Only replenish the amount of bedding you have taken out – between 1 and 2 bales a week depending on the stable size.

Before you switch over from another type of horse bedding to Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu, we recommend that you clean your stable thoroughly with Boxengold® Liquid Cleaner to neutralise years of urine and manure residue, even deep down in the cracks.

Here’s how to maximise the effectiveness of Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu:

  • First of all remove all the old horse bedding from the stable
  • Mix the content of one bottle of Boxengold® Liquid Cleaner with 20-30 litres of water and apply the solution generously to the entire stable
  • Leave the Liquid Cleaner solution to soak into the floor, which takes 2 to 4 hours depending on its composition; the floor should be completely dry before you cover it with Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu
  • Repeat this deep cleaning process once a year if possible

Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is most effective when the bedding layer is at least 15 cm thick. You will initially need 8 bales for an average 12 m² stable.

Horses like to have dry, clean bedding that doesn’t smell of ammonia. Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu helps you to achieve that as a result of its excellent absorbency. Wet areas are generally small in diameter and therefore quick and simple to remove.

The wood fibres have a special structure that simplifies skipping out. Very few fibres adhere to the dung, which reduces the amount of clean horse bedding landing on the muck heap.

If you skip out daily and remove the wet patches every 6-10 days, you’ll soon notice how economical Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is. Depending on stable size, you’ll only need to add one bale or so of new bedding every week.

Wood generally takes longer than straw to reach the stage of rotting when it can be used as agricultural manure.

Our new Liquid Booster

  • Considerably accelerates the rotting process
  • Contains no chemical or artificial additives
  • Is simply sprayed onto the muck heap
  • Only uses natural microorganisms

Recent laboratory tests have revealed that the rotting process is accelerated by more than 12% over a 14-day period!

Respiratory problems: coughs and dust allergies


Horses that cough need plenty of fresh air and dust-free horse bedding!

Relatively a lot of horses are allergic to the dust and fungal spores that are often found in hay. The first thing you have to do to alleviate the problem is eliminate the cause of the cough.

If you take the following actions your horse’s breathing will improve and you’ll notice a genuine long-term improvement:

  • Ensure the horse gets plenty of fresh air – a loose barn or paddock box makes sense if the horse has a chronic cough. In any event the stable should have a window
  • Minimise the exposure of the horse’s respiratory system to dust and ammonia vapour. Choose a dust-free horse bedding type. Ensure that the horse is not in the stable when you’re mucking out, sweeping or shaking out hay
  • Horses with lung problems benefit from light daily exercise. It increases air intake to the lungs and helps to shift mucus. But never overexert the horse!
  • In more serious cases of respiratory disease it’s a good idea to check the riding arena and surrounding area for dust and allergens

Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is dust-free, deodorising, entirely mould-free and practically germ-free. It also provides effective thermal insulation in the winter. Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is therefore the perfect bedding alternative for horses with respiratory problems. Always consult a vet. We'll be happy to recommend the right expert for you!

Hoof and skin ailments: thrush and cracked heels


Horses with thrush or cracked heels need bedding that is as dry as possible and direct hoof or horn contact with the bacteria in the manure should be avoided.

Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu allows the urine to seep through to the bottom layer, where it is soaked up. If you don’t use the deep bedding method and your horse has a hoof or skin ailment, it’s a good idea to remove damp areas more frequently.

Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is produced in an innovative process that eliminates practically all germs. As a result, the affected areas of the hoof horn or skin are exposed to fewer of the bacteria that can cause thrush or cracked heels.

Metabolic processes: impaction colic and metabolic diseases


Some horses tend to eat a considerable amount of their bedding. The horse’s digestive system can cope with moderate amounts of straw as roughage. However, when consumed in excessive amounts it can cause colic – often due to impaction – and other digestive problems. Horses that eat too much straw can also become overweight, leading to metabolic problems.

In their natural environment, horses are on the move all day long, even if they’re only walking. Stabled horses obviously have less scope for free movement. Also, modern-day feeds contain a lot more energy than sparse steppe vegetation.

Seasonal weight fluctuations in horses that are put out to pasture in the summer months are normal. However, a horse carrying excessive weight over a long period of time can develop serious metabolic problems and diseases – e.g. EMS, laminitis or liver disease. It’s always difficult to establish the ideal diet for a horse and consulting a vet is always a good idea. We'll be happy to recommend the right expert for you!

Switching over to Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu is definitely a good choice if you want to control the amount of roughage your horse eats more effectively.

Musculoskeletal system: tendon injuries


The special fibre structure of Boxengold® Premium Ecostreu makes it slightly springy and also prevents the horse from slipping.

This is a big advantage for horses with musculoskeletal problems because the bedding prevents the hoof from sinking in and over-stretching the tendons and ligaments. It also cushions movement, which makes it gentle on the joints. Horses that are convalescing particularly benefit from having the right bedding to support the healing process.
