Boyd Bedding: Blue Frog
Welcome to Boyd Bedding, home of the multi award-winning BlueFrog shavings. Based in Northern Ireland, Since 2000, we have been manufacturing high quality, ultra-hygienic and sustainable bedding designed to support health and wellbeing in equines, from family ponies to elite sport horses.
Manufactured from sustainably sourced virgin pine and spruce, BlueFrog is heat sterilised to provide a 100% dust-free equestrian bedding that supports optimal respiratory health and associated performance. BlueFrog is an excellent choice for animals that have heightened sensitivity to dust and other allergens.
Our premium range also includes kiln-dried sawdust and shavings suitable for cattle, sheep and poultry. All our bedding is manufactured in our purpose-built factory located in Omagh, County Tyrone, and is shipped worldwide. If you’d like to find out more, or to obtain a quotation, please get in touch.
Why Use Blue Frog Bedding?
In modern equestrianism, stabling is essential. But by keeping our horses inside, we expose them to dust, spores and allergens that may cause irritation and even chronic problems such as inflammatory airway disease (IAD) or COPD, commonly known as ‘heaves’. Research shows that under normal conditions, a horse can inhale up to 12 million dust particles in a single breath.
BlueFrog shavings are manufactured specifically to eliminate respiratory irritants that can affect the wellbeing and competitive performance of your horse.
Working closely with leading equestrians and vets, we’ve established the optimal flake size to ensure stability underfoot and excellent moisture absorption, whilst enabling us to extract all dust and small particles from the bedding. The flakes are heat treated to ensure no spores or bacteria are present, then vacuum packed into sterile, individually wrapped bales for convenience.
