Coconut Bedding for Horses

I would like to know if coconut husks are used as bedding for horse stalls? If so, where can I purchase it? I have not seen any in tack and feed stores and don't know of any stables that use it in the States. Do you have any information as to whether it is safe for them and if it is cost effective for the owner. I am alittle tired of using wood products for stalls. I would love to go green!!!

Hi.

Coconut husks are definitely used as bedding for horse stalls.

Many horse owners in Europe are already using it as evidenced by a lady in Italy who uses nothing but coconut husks in her stalls. She also talks about how very safe it is for the horse as well as all the advantages that come with cleanup when using it.

For further information please see her website http://www.eliabonanni.it/en/prodotti.html.

As far as where you can purchase it in the States? We do not exactly know because this is not our area of expertise. However, we do know that there are companies from all over that export and import this product.

Interestingly, we came across this thread of emails just recently from users (like yourself) looking to purchase coconut husk shavings for their horses and/or other farm animals. From what these folks are saying, farmers and horse owners in the southern Ohio/Kentucky region have located a supplier for coconut husks, but no name was mentioned. Apparently, the cost was reasonable too.

For additional information on this, check out http://forum.horsetopia.com/product-reviews/141213-coconut-husk-bedding.html.

Thanks so much for your inquiry and we support you 100% in wanting to go green by utilizing coconut husks in your stalls!!

We will continue to research this issue and attempt to come up with several names of suppliers. If you would, please let us know if you find out something more as well.

That will be very helpful information for many going forward.

Thanks and Be Well!

For the health of your horse is of paramount
importance that the bedding is kept clean and in the best phyto-sanitary condition.
Coconuts fiber bedding, due to its high absorption capacity, ensures
the complete removal of odours and a total
absence of dust. It maintains optimal
phyto-sanitary conditions and prevents the
onset of serious diseases (rheumatism,
respiratory,worms or onychomycosis of
the foot etc).

Good results with coconuts bedding in milch cow, calf, steer and cattle breeding.
The animals remains clean and dry, with a decrease of odour thanks to its strong deodorant power (retains liquid and ammonia). The presence of mosquitoes and flies drop off.

The coconuts fiber is very soft and smooth never slippery. Compared to woody bedding, or wheat straw, the use of coconuts fiber allows to use small quantities of product saving, consequently, costs and space of storage, and reducing manure-heap volume

We provide several horse-stables in Italy and in many other Countries.

Here in California it's available under the name of Coconut Cowboy, though the one place I knew dropped it as a product last week. I am now searching for another local distributor. You can find them on Facebook under that name and they answer any questions posted
