NO NO NO!! i had aquamax i would not recomend it. ok it is kind of ok as you dont waste the bedding but its uncomfortable and shavings are much better. it is over priced and if your horse box walks or is messy its a no no. never looks like a nice bed. umm sorry i dont like it but thats my opinion x
At my old yard we had to be on aqua max. If your horse is very wet then this is perfect!takes about 5 mins to muck out!You have to have rubber matting though...as your meant to have quite a thin bed-although i had mine nice and thick and worked really well!
Im using shredded cardboard which is mega cheap (pm for supplier details - they deliver nationwide). I buy 100 bales for £2.85 per bale (plus vat). I use a bale per stable per week (sometimes 2 if theyve been in for some days in the winter). VERY absorbant and lightweight so I can skip out 4 stables into one wheelbarrow. No smell...and doesnt get everywhere either. The farmer loves it and will spread it on his fields no trouble. The delivery men unload and stack for me to which is a bonus!
