So… Just HOW Did Cowboy Shavings Come To Be?
Cowboy Shavingscame to be with a mill owner and a lumber salesman that couldn’t bare to see any product go to waste especially beautiful trees that just weren’t lumber quality, so they decided to turn those trees into shavings. They had a lot of trial and error coming up with the best process and procedures to create the perfect product they were envisioning. They started tree sourcing and creating a plan that that only uses the internals of the best quality trees and the screening process that guarantees we are delivering the best consistent product possible. Fast forward several years and wipe away a lot of blood sweat and tears and you now have Cowboy shavings… can we get a “Hallelujah”? Well, if we don’t get it now, you can save it for opening up your first bag!
Is It True That Cowboy Shavings ONLY Uses The Highest Quality Soft Woods?
Yes, Cowboy shavings uses only the highest qualityCanadian Spruce, Pine and Firtrees. Our Mill is in Northern Alberta and is surrounded by some of the most luscious forest in the area. We process dead standing trees which means they are no longer growing or retaining nutrients and are considered dead, this allows us to help the environment and conservation by removing the old trees and allowing the new trees to flourish and grow. Very simply, instead of standing dead and useless, they can now bring comfort and joy to you and your horses!
Why Does Cowboy Shavings ONLY Use Softwood Trees From Canada?
Canadian trees are generally larger and have a larger internal density and less bark and other products we remove prior to processing. We peel all our trees prior to processing which means you will never find chunks of bark in your bags of shavings. We also only use soft white wood due to the texture and absorbability when shaved. We don’t ever use cedar in our shavings to avoid any negative reactions to various kind of livestock. We are horse people too and we know what it takes to provide the best in shavings for your horses.
What Is The Size Of “Flake” For Cowboy Shavings?
Our shavings are considered a Medium to Large flake, so they are versatile for all animals from horses to chickens. We want our flakes to be consistent and easy for the consumer to manage and clean. Our shavings are very easy to pick thru, they don’t mush and create patties when wet so they can be picked with a fork when damp. They are light and fluffy so spreading them out is a breeze.
Note:We do have the ability to take special orders for customers that want full loads of small flake shavings.
Is It True That They Are Highly Absorbent?
Yes! A large percentage of our customers are in the equine world, and they love that these shavings absorb the urine vs just covering it up as it drains through or turning into mucky mess of wet and saw dust. The kiln dried flakes actually take on the moisture and then fall to the bottom as the animals move so they are not standing in a mess.
Don’t Forget, Cowboy Shavings Are VirtuallyDUST FREE!
Our shavings are strictly processed from the internal parts of the trees so there is no bark or other material that helps create dust, then they are screened for imperfections followed by a through kiln drying and then screened 2 more times to eliminate 99% of dust that would be in typical shavings.This is why we consider them dust free.
MORE $HAVING$ For Your MONEY!
When our bags are filled, they are not just blown up with shavings dumped in and sealed. 3 cubic feet are packed into our bags and when they open it expands to 8 cubic feet which is enough to cover a full horse stall in a horse trailer.
