Frequently asked questions

Sundown Green can be used as the only bedding for your horse, or used in conjunction with rubber matting, or other bedding products such as Sun-e-bed straw pellets. You can create banks, or leave the bed flat, it’s entirely up to you!

To keep the bed clean, regularly remove droppings and wet patches. The bedding is easy to compost and will rot down quickly in your muck-heap.

Our customers often remark on the wonderful eucalyptus fragrance used in our Sundown Green bedding.

This fragrance is added during the baling process and help to deter flies and make your stable smell fresh!

You will need between four and five bales of Sundown Green to make up a new bed in a 12ft x 12 ft stable. 

Top up with one or two bales per week, depending on how much bedding has been removed and how deep you like the bed.

If your horse is used to wheat or rapeseed straw bedding and doesn’t eat its bedding at the moment, it is unlikely to eat Sundown Green bedding.

If you are switching from wood shavings, paper, or a pellet bedding (wood pellets or straw pellets) your horse may show some interest in eating Sundown Green. However, straw is a natural forage and will be digested like any other fibre in the diet (like hay or chaff), so there is no need to be concerned if they eat some of the bedding.

Ensuring that you feed sufficient fibre in your horse’s diet will discourage them, and water should be freely available at all times.

Sundown Green is double de-dusted, making it a dust-free bedding suitable for horses who have dust allergies or respiratory problems like COPD.

It’s also great for humans who suffer with dust allergies when mucking-out!

Unlike wood shavings and pellets, no trees are involved in the production of Sundown Green chopped straw bedding.

Pine trees can take between 25 – 30 years to reach harvestable size, whereas straw is produced every year, as a natural by-product of grain production. Sundown Green is made from wheat straw.

The structure of straw means that it is highly bio-degradable. It rots down quickly to form a nutritious compost that releases nitrogen and other nutrients back into the soil, when it is spread as manure onto fields.

We source all our straw from local British farmers. This means we have full traceability on every bale that enters our production facility, and by using mainly local suppliers, we keep help to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible.
