@Tom I know you use the pine pellet horse bedding sold at Tractor Supply.. Is all pine pellet horse bedding ok? Wondering if there is any that you feel people should stay away from. For those of us who do not live near a Tractor Supply and want to buy online.
Thanks for your insight!

i can't speak for any that I've never seen. I don't know a reason to stay away from any though, as I understand it, it's just compressed sawdust, so I don't see a good reason for any manufacturer to add anything else to it.

This last batch we got from TSC is all short pellets, whereas it used to be longer. It moves around more, and I was worried about the puppies being unsteady on it, but they took to it with no issues. It's actually easier to pick up off of without getting a bunch of extra pellets at the same time.

We started out, years ago, using hardwood pellets for pellet stoves. That worked okay, but the Pine pellets seem to absorb any odor better.

Petsmart sells the Pine pellets for cat litter, in smaller bags for 6 times the price.

@Tom I'd love to see an updated photo of the puppies. It sure would be a nice distraction from all the sheltering in place. I hope I'm not breaking a forum rule by asking .

You can go to the Starborn Havanese website to see puppy pictures of both of the litters they have right now!

Thank you for that information. What a beautiful litter of puppies (both sets). The videos are great too. Just the break I needed.

Hi - sorry to bother you again - just wanted to see if this appeared to be the same thing (I've never purchased it before).. The closest Tractor Supply is 40 minutes away. This could be shipped to the same town I live in.
Thanks!

No bother at all. One of the main things for these forums is for people to ask questions.

We typically take pictures on Sunday afternoon, and Pam often gets them on the website on Mondays. We're visiting my 104 year old Mother in her Assisted Living place, outside her windows, on Sundays, so there is often not enough time to work on the website.

Please realize that we never have any available puppies, when you see them on the website. I wouldn't even post about them here if they weren't all spoken for.

Should be fine. Wood Pellet manufacturing is really a side business for sawmills. They run the sawdust through an extruder to make the pellets. There is no reason for them to add anything to the sawdust. That's why they just turn back to sawdust when they get wet.
