Livestock such as horses require a great deal of upkeep, but when people take time to purchase animals that come from good bloodlines and were bred with a particular purpose in mind, the initial investment can become one that more than pays for itself over time. Rather than using traditional materials for animal bedding pellets and bales, replace hay and straw dust with coco peat. It’s a hardy material taken from the tough outer shells of coconuts.
Coco-Peat has a better absorption rate. When the horses urinate on the bedding it is onlyrequired to replace a small portion of Coco-Peat bedding which can be easily identified with its changing color, with urine. Hence it will be cheaper to replace bedding.

Stocking of Coco-Peat bales are made easy due to its method of packaging that compresses the Coco-Peat to a ratio of 2:1 and made it into a shape of a cube of 20 kg and packed in a white polythene cover.
This low compression ratio supports the user to de-compress the bales manually. And its low weight (20 kg) allows a single person to handle a job manually.
