wood shavings or pellets, straw is harder to muck out and they can easily get colick from eating too much of it
Wood shavings! Absorbs a lot more, comfy for horses and is much easier to clean than straw!
But my favorite bedding ever is wood pellets! I can go 3-4 weeks without cleaning the urine out. It absorbs like crazy!! The pellets will break down into a sand like form and is very soft and easy to clean!
Horses prefer straw over shavings, so I recommend straw. However it isn't as easy to clean as shavings. So it depends on what qualities you want in the bedding.
Wood shavings bc they absorb more but they can start to stink and are pretty hard to get completely out it of a stall
