How to make an ALLSPAN bed:
We recommend for box sized approx. 3.50 m x 3.50 m, the use of a base layer consisting of four to five bales (4 x 650l bales or 5 x 550l bales). This volume of shavings is sufficient to give the horse a soft and comfortable bed that is about 6-8 inches 15 to 20 cm deep
The easiest way to open a bale of ALLSPAN is to make two crosswise knife incisions into its shrink-wrapping. This way the packaging can be removed easily and the shavings can be spread using a 8 or 10 tine fork. The bed will initially be very loose, but quickly turns into a compacted, dry layer.
From the beginning we recommend to carefully remove droppings using a multi tine fork. Between five and seven days after spreading the base layer, use the fork to also remove any wet patches of material and refill will dry shavings. After about 10-14 days top up the existing layer with between a half and one bale of fresh shavings in order to keep the box fresh and tidy.
