Bedding & Sawdust

Blue Frog Shavings

Our timber initially undergoes a process unique and key to blue frog. The timber is debarked to ensure the cleanest bedding possible. Once debarked, the timber is then planed to a specific and optimum sized flake. We have extensively consulted our customers, and have backed up their feedback with field tests (well stable actually), to establish the best size of flake for the ultimate in stability underfoot, absorption, and retention of product during process, packaging and storage. Mucking out and disposal was also taken into account when deciding the perfect size of flake. The flakes are then dried in a large furnace. The high temperatures used, sterilize the flakes naturally, leaving the bedding both absorbent and clean.


The heat used in the drying process ensures there are no fungi, spores, or bacteria present in the bedding. We continuously monitor our bedding independently with microtoxicity tests carried out to ensure the natural sterility of our product. The nature of bluefrog large flakes allows us to thoroughly remove all small particles. This stage in the process is the most significant for horses’ health. Horses are very sensitive to dust and it is very important to keep dust to a minimum. Once sensitised horses can go on to develop allergies which will impair their competitive performance. Blue frog allows you to minimise the impact of the environment on your horse.


Once dried and dust extracted the flakes are baled and palletised, without being handled by hand. This streamline aspect of the process keeps our efficiency of supply up and costs down. Bluefrog bedding is created from virgin timber, it is not made from recycled waste product. Yet when you choose bluefrog you are helping plant more trees, as all our timber comes from government managed Coillte forests. Having control over our raw material gives us two main advantages. Firstly our product has no risk of contamination from the processing used on waste timber, or spores which can be present in organic or non-sterile bedding.


The other advantage is that we don’t suffer from seasonal scarcity that occurs with a process that relies on waste products from other production processes. By specifically manufacturing bluefrog we can keep control over quality and price, giving you the customer the peace of mind that you are using the best bedding available at the best price!

We offer a wide selection of bedding and Sawdust including Blue Frog shavings, Platts Sawdust, Hay and Straw. We are the agents for many different types of bedding products.
