  • 01464 820011
  • RRP £5.50 for 15kg

Pellet Beds Equine Max

  • 01789 761333
  • RRP £4.98 for 15kg

  • 01466 700367
  • RRP from £5.27 for 18kg
  • Absorbent wood pellets that provide a cost-effective bed. Made from sustainable, premium-grade timber from Scottish forests. Spruce pine is naturally antiseptic, fresh and highly-absorbent, so it soaks up odours and moisture.
