Aubiose - hemp bedding for horses

wheat straw - a good choice of bedding for horsesAubiose is a very absorbent, dust free, equine bedding material manufactured from the soft centre of the hemp plant.

The hemp plants used in Aubiose horse bedding are grown n France without the use of herbicides, pesticides or funcides.

It takes around 6 - 8 bales of Aubiose to create the initial bed in a typical 12 foot X 12 foot stable.

Having laid the horse's bed you then need to sprinkle the Aubiose with water - about 1 gallon of water for each bale used. The purpose of this is to activate the bedding's sponge-like properties. You will soon get to know how much water to apply - as you'll realise the hemp bedding is highly absorbent.

As it has natural absorbent qualities, similar to a sponge, Aubiose is said to be capable of absorbing 12 times more water than straw and 4 times more than wood shavings.

Because the Aubiose bedding is so absorbent, and because it also traps smells and ammonia, you can keep a deep litter bed and still have a pleasant smelling stable for your horse.

The important thing to remember about a hemp bed for your horse is to disturb it as little as possible.

This equine bedding is easy to maintain - saving you time and money, while providing your horse or pony with a comfortable and safe bed.

All you need to do when mucking out Aubiose bed is to remove the droppings daily and level the bed with a rake. Then, once a week, rake the dry bedding to one side and take out the wet bedding. You can add fresh Aubiose as necessary to top up your horse's bed. The average use is between half and one bale a week.

There is no problem with disposing of Aubiose Bedding as it decomposes quickly into a highly fertile organic fertilizer.

Cost wise the bales are more expensive to buy than other types of equine bedding such as wood shavings. But as you need to use less - Aubiose can still work out to be very cost effective.

Many horse owners have reported saving up to a third on the cost of bedding when they have switched to using Aubiose.
