Peat Moss Bedding--Why we use it.
Peat Moss bedding has been increasing in popularity in barns because of a number of unique characteristics. Peat has a very high absorbency level and when a stall is adequately bedded with peat moss the ammonia odor from urine is essentially eliminated. We bed with approximately 8 inches of peat moss. Horses coming in from barns with inadequate bedding are amazed at how much time their horses spend down and relaxing and see a difference in their attitude due, in part, to a more fully recuperative sleep.
We have included some information below to further illustrate why we utilize Peat Moss Bedding at our farm.
