1.Completely strip the stall of all previous bedding.
2. To start, add 2 to 5 bags of EQUI-LITTER for an average 12x12 stall. Lasts up
to two weeks (without re-bedding) depending on your horse's excretion habits and
how much time it spends in its stall. DO NOT add too much bedding in the beginning.
EQUI-LITTER expands greatly as it absorbs moisture. Too much bedding will make it
more difficult to clean and will not allow the stall to ventilate properly.
3. For cleaning, just remove the solids and the "wettest" spot(s) with a manure fork.
You can mix the remaining wet areas into the rest of the bedding. The purpose of
this is to have the drier bedding absorb the moisture. If the bedding becomes too
dry or dusty, just sprinkle water as needed and mix thoroughly. The optimum moisture
content is reached when the bedding feels slightly damp to the touch. Once this bedding
process is started, you can maintain a comfortable base with an even consistency
by adding more Equi-Litter as needed, according to your preferences.
4. You can repeat Step 2 every month, or you may add a bag per week for stall maintenance.
Using EQUI-LITTER may require changing the way you manage your stalls. Different
horses (especially younger ones) may require the use of more bedding because of their
stall habits. The product performs best on stall mats, cement and wood floors. Dirt
floors require a different approach to the amount used and bedding maintenance. When
managed properly, you'll love the results.
