Purpose made for owners who
want all the benefits of BEDMAX
but in a finer, lighter shaving.

Dust free fine shavings from BEDMAX

Littlemax Shavings

We began making LITTLEMAX Fine Shavings in 2010 in response to a demand for shavings that had all the dust free, hygienic, natural pine benefits of BEDMAX, but in a lighter, finer form.

Owners who trialled LITTLEMAX have reported that it performs exactly as they had hoped. Like BEDMAX, it addresses all the health and welfare issues of keeping your horse in the stable, and for owners it’s proved extremely easy and time-saving to use and maintain.

I have used many brands over the years but have always returned to Bedmax as the quality never changes and they are always guaranteed to be dust free. I am sure our horses, staff and event competitors appreciate all these benefits.

Features and Benefits

LITTLEMAX Fine Shavings have all the benefits of BEDMAX, including:

Bedding is potentially the biggest source of dust in the stable, and dust can impair or seriously damage your horse’s respiratory system. BEDMAX has one of the lowest levels of dust and spores on the market.
Your horse’s hooves need firm, resilient support. Our larger flakes provide it. We also dry BEDMAX to a controlled moisture content to prevent hooves from drying out and cracking.
Our larger shavings help drain urine from the surface to be absorbed by smaller shavings at a lower level. This keeps the surface dry and reduces the risk ammonia poses to your horse’s lungs and hooves.
BEDMAX shavings help create a clean, supportive bed that encourages horses to lie down and rest, and cushions hocks and other joints from damage.
Horses in stables need to be able to lie down to achieve deep REM sleep. A comfortable, clean, natural bed enables horses to lie down and rest properly and safely.
Maintaining hygiene effectively is crucial and difficult. We make BEDMAX shavings from fresh pine because pine offers unique antibacterial action against harmful bacteria and fungi. We also dry our shavings at sterilising temperatures during production.

Why a Finer Shaving?

We launched LITTLEMAX in 2010 for owners who wanted a finer, lighter shaving than BEDMAX, but with the same assurance of ultra low dust levels, consistent high standards of quality, and the natural hygenic power of pine.

Why Littlemax?

Although BEDMAX remains our principal bedding for horses, some owners choose LITTLEMAX simply because they prefer a finer shaving, and many LITTLEMAX users tell us they think it is particularly easy and quick to manage.

‘No Hoof, No Horse’

There are six major health risks which affect stabled horses and one of these includes hoof care.  With more horses in the UK spending a greater proportion of their lives in stables, bedding has become increasingly important to the health of horses’ hooves. The hoof horn of the average horse is remarkably resistant to infection, considering the environment they inhabit.  However, research indicates that horn infections such as seedy toe, onychomycosis and white line disease are becoming more common.  These are known as dry infections, as opposed to the kind resulting from bacteria entering the foot via a wound.
