ALLSPAN soft pellets are made from natural softwood without any additives Extremely absorbent
The pellets offer maximum moisture retention due to a larger surface area. 1 bag of pellets approx. 15 kg absorbs about 65 litres of urine. The heat-treated pellets are virtually free of germs and spurs and horses’ hooves are kept healthy and dry. The formation of ammonia is prevented and as an added bonus the pellets emit a pleasant wooden fragrance.
Minimal wastage & fast putrefaction: 80% less waste! Droppings can easily be separated from clean material allowing more material to remain in the box. Wet spots darken and are easy to remove. After the initial bedding has been put down you will only need to refill about 1-2 15kg sacks per week.

How to use ALLSPAN SOFT pellets
For the first cover of a standard box (12m²) approx. 160-180 kg or about twelve 15kg bags (rule of thumb = per 1m² box 1 bag). Distribute ALLSPAN SOFT pellets evenly in the box. An initial height of between five and six centimetres is sufficient to form a firm, elastic, absorbent and dust-free mattress. You can initially lightly water the pellets with the help of a watering can, this accelerates the breaking down of the pellets.
First week: In the first week, it is advisable to just remove the droppings and leave the moist urine in the box. Second week
From the second week onwards you should start to remove the darker wet spots and replace the removed material with 1 or 2 sacks of fresh SOFT pellets.
Less is more It is important to add small amounts of new material on a weekly basis spreading as described above, as well as a light, but regular, ventilation of the mattress by aerating it using a fork . This gives you the full functionality of the mattress for many months without having to muck out your box completely. The originally light-brown ALLSPAN SOFT pellets darken within one to one and a half months, but this natural process does not impair its functionality (absorption of moisture, ammonia, smell).
