It is important to know the species of wood used in a bedding.
Many hardwoods are toxic to horses and the slightest content
of those hardwoods can potentially cause irreversible health
problems in the Equine athlete. The content of tannic acids

softwoods will reduce the
absorption and coverage in the stall. This means you will use
more hardwood bedding pound for pound over softwood.
