Stall Bedding
We use wheat straw for bedding. Not as nice as shavings for picking but at $1.25 a bale it does a good job.

Shavings around here run close to $6.00 per bale.

We use about 12 bales a week for 6 horses stalled overnight with the stalls stripped twice a week.

"The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life. " Author: Robert Louis Stevenson
I use shavings and they cost 5.49 a bag IF you buy over 10 bags. Otherwise they are 6.89 per bag. When I first started I used to get them for 3.30 a bag!!! They have gone up tremendously like evrything else! My shavings are Pine I believe.
I use the pellets also. I like them better than shavings, but I think they cause more dust than shavings. Just my observation...
